Cllr Paul Gibb - Aboyne, Upper Deeside & Donside

Aboyne resident Paul Gibb has been selected as the Scottish Conservative and Unionist candidate for the Aboyne,

Upper Deeside & Donside ward for the local government elections in May.  Paul and his family have lived in the north east of Scotland for the past 10 years, returning to the area following a long period in the Middle East and South East Asia through his work in the oil and gas industry. For the past six years Paul has owned and managed a small consultancy business working on projects both in Aberdeen and overseas.

Paul believes it is important - when you can - to contribute to the community where you live, and he has for the past five years supported fund-raising for local charities in Aboyne and Upper Deeside through his involvement in the Aboyne Summer Charity Ball. The total amount raised in the past 5 years exceeds £20,000 and has been shared by ten charities and good causes which last year included Braemar Mountain Rescue.

The role of a councillor is to represent the views of all the people who live, work or have businesses in this Ward.
Of the many issues that concern people, if elected, Paul will:

  • Work in partnership with schools, the council and Scottish Government to improve opportunities for outstanding academic achievement.
  • Improve access to affordable housing for key workers.
  • Promote initiatives that maintain access to, and provision of healthcare, for all our needs.
  • Support new priority routes, road widening schemes and repairs to pot holes.
  • Improve broadband and mobile coverage.
  • Maintain and increase bus services and community lead transport initiatives.

Paul has over 20 years experience working with multi-disciplinary groups and if elected would work cooperatively to ensure that the issues within the ward were addressed for the benefit of residents, those working in the ward and small business owners.

Paul has consistently believed that Scotland, its interests and its people, is best served by remaining a part of the United Kingdom and he will always seek to make a positive case for Scotland to remain an active, influential and supportive member country within the United Kingdom.
