A former community councillor has come out in support of Independent candidate Ian Murdoch.

Mrs Margaret Brown who served on the Largs council when Mr Murdoch was chairman said he did a good job in representing the residents.

In a letter to the 'News' she commented: "I was shocked to read Tom Marshall's letter in which he claimed there were "internecine wars under the recent chairmanship regime of Mr Murdoch. I was a member of Largs CC for many years and I can state very strongly that Mr Murdoch was the best and most fair chair Largs CC has had for many years."

The full letter and two pages of views are in the Largs & Millport Weekly News of April 18.
