There are three positions here with the SNP’s Adam McVey, the council leader during the last term, and Green councillor Chas Booth, a very able committee member, both standing again.

Labour councillor Gordon Munro has stepped down after a long career at the City Chambers.

McVey won over a third of the vote in this ward, and is now the leader of the largest political group on the council.
