Cllr Ann Ross - Banchory & Mid Deeside

Crathes resident Ann Ross has been selected as the Scottish Conservative and Unionist candidate for the Banchory & Mid Deeside ward for the local government elections in May.

Ann has lived in the north east of Scotland the greater part of her life, bringing up her family at Crathes.  Her children attended local schools. She has worked both in the oil industry, in the NHS as a nurse and has volunteered for 11 years as a community councillor, having business, public sector, voluntary and political experience. A team player with an analytical mindset, able to work with colleagues of all persuasions for the benefit of the community.

Ann says “I challenge the status quo, and question why things are done a certain way.  I will work hard to represent the views of all the people who live, work or have businesses in this Ward, to ensure that local interests are considered, looked after and are not forgotten.  Issues such as the provision of a new health and social care centre; raising educational standards; school premises that are fit for purpose; and good mobile phone coverage/high speed broadband, that are so important to people in this area are also important to me.  I care passionately about the local communities in Deeside.”

Retiring Scottish Conservative & Unionist Councillor for Banchory and Mid Deeside Jill Webster said, “I have seen Ann in action as a Community Councillor dealing with local issues and I know she is not only totally committed and works really hard but also gets results.

She has that perfect balance of life’s experience, having worked in both the oil industry and also as a nurse in the NHS, and local knowledge, having lived in the Banchory and Mid Deeside ward most of her life. 

I am very happy to endorse her as a truly excellent candidate, and know I can move on to other challenges after 14 years knowing the Banchory and Mid Deeside Ward would be in safe hands with Ann.”
