East Dunbartonshire Provost and Councillor Alex Hannah sadly passed away on Easter Sunday after a long battle with cancer. Books of condolence have been opened at Tom Johnston House in Kirkintilloch and the Triangle Centre in Bishopbriggs.
Responding to the sad news, Jo said:
“Alex’s passing is a huge loss to the people of Bishopbriggs, and our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with his family at this difficult time. Alex drew respect from across the political spectrum, and he will be remembered for his kind manner, good nature and the dedication with which he served as Councillor for 14 years, and more recently as Provost. He will be sorely missed by all those who knew him.”
