COSLA president Norman Murray has announced that he is to stand down as


Speaking at a meeting of council leaders today cllr Murray

said that after more than two years in the job he felt that the time was

right to move on.

'The review of COSLA is also more or less complete with most of the

recommendations now in place,' he continued, adding: 'COSLA is now moving

forward to a secure future.'

A special meeting of the convention to appoint a new president will be held

in October.

Mr Murray also paid tribute to Oonagh Aitken, COSLA's chief

executive, who is also to leave the organisation to pursue other interests.

'It has been a privilege to work with Oonagh,' he said, 'her contribution to

COSLA and local government, and her achievements over the past two years

have been immense and COSLA owes her a great debt for all her hard work.'
