DAVID May has been chosen as the Liberal Democrat candidate in the Montrose area ward at the Angus Council elections on May 3.

As a local councillor he has helped to deliver the new swimming pool improved leisure centre, the new cycle track to Northwater Bridge, new council houses and the study to improve the harbour area in South Montrose, as well as road improvements such as Big Tree bend, the work being undertaken on the A935 Brechin Road and road re-surfacing in the town.

He has also argued the case for a grade-related junction on the A90 at Laurencekirk and opposed cuts to student support and college funding.

Mr May also chairs the committee that is planning the celebration of 450 years Montrose golf links and a second group developing the new website and online booking for local golf courses.

As well as acting as a director of Montrose Day Care Centre, he is a trustee of Dorward House, Scott Jubilee Hall and Montrose Golf Links. He is also on the Town Regeneration Group, which aims to carry out High Street improvements, the Montrose Queen’s Jubilee committee and the planning group for Montrose music Festival’s annual High Street concert.

Mr May has served as councillor for the Montrose District since the last elections and has regularly attended each of the three community councils in the area. He is convener of infrastructure services and also on all five of the council’s services committees.

Commenting on his selection, he said: “I am honoured to be chosen as the local Lib Dem candidate and not only do I live in the ward, but I will also continue to be able to devote all my efforts and time to serve the people in the town.”
