Speaking after their reselection, Maurice Golden, North East Scotla nd MSP, said: "I work alongside Derek and Philip on a regular basis and know they have been outstanding councillors for the Ferry, standing up for residents, local employers and the issues that matter most. They are exactly the sort of local champions we need.”
