Cllr Awards 2022 Scotland winners
Cllr David Macdonald – East Renfrewshire Council
Cllr Stephen Burns – Renfrewshire Council (Highly commended)
As we mark the 5th anniversary of Cllr Awards, councils across Scotland have delivered in the face of the most turbulent and worrying years in recent history. Councillors have been responding to the pandemic, helping residents through the cost of living crisis, supporting refugees, delivering aid in response to the war in Ukraine and helping communities to come together to mourn the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
In this difficult context, we feel it is essential to take this moment in time to celebrate all local leadership across Scotland. As such, the Cllr Awards will be showcasing and recognising the leadership of each Council Leader in Scotland (those currently in post as well as those serving up to the May 2022 elections) for their remarkable contributions to local government over the last two years.
Bailie Malcolm Cunning – Glasgow City Council (in memoriam)
Cllr Maureen Chalmers – South Lanarkshire Council
Cllr Chris Cullen – South Ayrshire Council (Highly commended)
Cllr Connor McManus – Midlothian Council
