New Council Leader confirmed

Councillor Murray Lyle has been confirmed as the new Leader of Perth & Kinross Council's administration.

Councillor Lyle said, "I am proud to have been endorsed by my colleagues in the administration to progress from Deputy Leader to the most senior political role in Perth and Kinross. It is an honour tinged with sadness, however, that it came about as a result of the passing of my friend, Ian Campbell. I shall endeavour to uphold his values of integrity and fairness, and to work for the benefit of every citizen of Perth and Kinross."
