I was sad to hear that my friend and colleague George Regan will not be standing for re-election at the council elections in May. George has served the people of Dundee and the Labour Party well over the years. As well as serving on the council George has long had an interest in campaigning against nuclear weapons and the impact nuclear bombs in Japan. George has been involved in the Mayors for Peace initiative.
I would like to thank George for the help he has been to me over the years and to wish him all the best for the future. I hope that George will be restored to good health in the near future.
