Elections May 2007
Katrina MacNab Vote 1
Your Local Independent Councillor
Elected for the first time 4 years ago, my work has focused mainly on local issues, Education Culture and Sport, and Housing and Social Work.
I am the mother of two children who attend Wick High and I work in this community so I’m able to use my day to day experience to help shape policy and make a real difference at a local level.
As an Independent Councillor I make decisions based on what is best for the local people in the local communities I serve, NOT what is best for national political parties.
I have enjoyed working in this area with Cllr Bill Fernie. We have made a good team and I hope you will allow me to continue working with him in the next stage of Wick's development.
My main activities over the next 4 years will include:
What has been happening in Wick over the last 4 years?
