The Scottish National Party’s Mr Pete Wishart MP, Member of Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, has praised Cllr Jack Coburn, SNP Councillor for Perth City Centre, who has today (Wednesday) announced his intention to retire from the Council.
Mr Wishart said:
“An incredibly well-kent figure in Perth, Jack has done so much for the local community. From his younger days as a footballer with St Johnstone to his time on the Council, he has always had goals in mind and a determination to tackle important issues.
“Jack has long been a source of advice, encouragement and inspiration for myself and others and I would like to take the opportunity to publicly thank Jack for his contribution to Perth over the years and to wish him all the best for a very happy retirement.”
