The impact Falkirk North and SNP Leader of Falkirk Council has made in a very short period of time was recognised by the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities, (COSLA) SNP Group at the first meeting of the new session on 30 June.
At the annual general meeting of the group the Falkirk leader was nominated and appointed uanimously Depute Leader of the 44 strong SNP delegation to COSLA.
A surprised Councillor Meiklejohn said,
“It is very flattering to receive the support of your peers and I am humbled by the honour.”
The SNP in COSLA are led by East Ayrshire council leader, Dougie Reid who said,
“ I am delighted Cecil accepted the nomination and I look forward to working closely with her in the promotion of local government services and those who rely on them.”
“ I know I could not have been given a more accomplished deputy and I share that good fortune with the people of Falkirk.”
