Responding to the result of the Preston/Seton/Gosford ward by-election, which saw Labour’s Colin Yorkston elected, Martin Whitfield MSP said:

“I’m absolutely delighted that Colin emerged as the winner in this by-election. He’ll be a fantastic representative for the whole ward and a great addition to the Council.

“His victory also underlines the huge impact Willie Innes had on the area over the years and the positive legacy he left to it. I know that Colin will do his utmost to follow in Willie’s footsteps and be a dedicated voice for the area.”
