Stevenson & Whiteford Pay Tribute to Ian Gray

Stewart Stevenson and Eilidh Whiteford have paid tribute to Banff & District SNP councillor Ian Gray after he lost his battle with cancer on Saturday.

Ian Gray was elected to Aberdeenshire Council for the former Durn ward in a by-election in 2002 – notable for being the first all-postal by-election conducted in Scotland as part of an experiment – and subsequently in 2007 for the expanded Banff & District Ward, retaining his seat in 2012.

Stewart Stevenson said:

“Ian was a stalwart of the local Party and as well as serving his constituents diligently also did a tremendous amount of work for the SNP.

“Ian was always ready to lend a hand if asked and frequently assisted me in my annual mobile surgery tour around the villages.

“My condolences go to his family, who can take comfort from the high regard in which Ian was held in his home community.”

Local MP Eilidh Whiteford said:

“This is very sad news indeed. Portsoy and the surrounding communities have lost a great public servant.

“Ian was held in very high esteem by his colleagues on the council and his fellow Party members and his loss will be keenly felt. All our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.”
