Fraser has been LibDem Councillor for the West End on Dundee City Council since 2001 and has topped the poll in all of the five council elections he has contested. He has served as the Council’s Education Convener, Finance Convener and Planning and Transport Convener. Fraser is a board member & Vice-Chair of Dundee Age Concern and a member of the college council of the Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education.
Yesterday afternoon, Community Spirit Action Group, the community group for the "north" part of West End Ward, covering Tullideph, Ancrum, Pentland, the Cleghorn area and surrounding streets, held a walkabout across part of its area, and I was pleased to take part, alongside Community Spirit members and the communities officer for the West End.
The idea of the walkabout is to look at local issues and then follow them up with the appropriate council department or other organisation to achieve repairs and improvements. We highlighted a number of issues that the group will follow up with the responsible department or organisation.
Here's some examples below:
