An Ellon resident of 36 years, Trevor has a list of jobs to get stuck into and the desperate need for a 21st century Health Centre is top of the list. He said; “With Ellon Councillor, Isobel Davidson, I recently ran a survey throughout the whole ward.

"People are crying out for better health care facilities”.

"Speeding traffic is also a problem.

“We know that over half the traffic on Craig's Road speeds; people can’t get out of Knockothie Crescent onto the bypass; the 20 mph limit in the town centre needs to be extended along Golf Road; Foveran residents are up in arms about traffic speeding through the village, and it’s a problem in the centre of Newburgh, too”.

Liberal Democrats have a proud record of community service, and Trevor Mason is committed to carrying on that tradition.

He continued: “Being a councillor is not about high affairs of state; it’s about looking after the everyday things that matter to local people- schools, roads, bins, parks- how important have our parks been during lockdown?- care for the elderly, and controlling development”

Trevor knows the next few years are going to be tough.

Brexit will cut us off from our largest international market.

Oil and gas continues to reduce in this economy much faster than the drive for renewables can take up the slack.

Every single public penny is a prisoner to paying down the Covid debt.

Councils are going to struggle to just keep the lights on.

That’s why it’s important to have a councillor who will work with Ellon people on local services, and not obsess about independence or fighting with Europe.

He will be a local councillor who just wants to make a difference.
