blogging-break ... was the announcement that my Ward colleague, Gordon Buchan, was not intending to stand again next May.
Despite our obvious political differences, I have to say I'll miss Gordon's company in Ward 9: assuming I get back-in myself of course?
He's been nothing but a pleasure to work alongside, and has been an extremely hard-working Local Councillor.
I do hope the Tories don't select anyone as effective for 2012 ;-)
More seriously - my very best wishes do go to Gordon for the future.
