Through his ongoing work with various communities, committees and agencies across Aberdeen, things are actually happening daily.
"By the strength of our common endeavour, we achieve more than we achieve alone so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true and full potential, and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are afforded and managed by the people for the people. The objective is for the individual to fulfil their potential and ambition. My role is as the enabler of this, not the controller of it, aiming not to limit that ambition or those goals, but to open up their possibility to all. This is real community, and it is not constrained by old geographical lines or monarch-style leadership."

in the city for the city

It was an enormous pleasure to be invited to the Shah Mustafa Mosque by Cllr Malik BEM to receive food donations for TLC prior to the commencement of Ramadan.

True community crosses many perceived boundary lines. TLC has been doing an extraordinary work since it was founded in 2002, and it never ceases to amaze me how generous people are. My communities benefit from the generosity and good will of many organisations, not least from the faith groups. At the heart of all this is humanity's heart cry to make this world a better place. It is at the grass roots of communities that cllrs and government officials can make a huge difference to local people.

Thank you to all those who made this happen. And thank you councillors for being in the city 'for' the city.
