New Depute Provost and Culture and Leisure chair appointed
Two councillors have been appointed to senior roles by West Lothian Council.
Councillor Cathy Muldoon has been appointed as West Lothian's new Depute Provost, with Councillor Andrew McGuire becoming the new Executive councillor for culture and leisure.
Current Executive councillor for development and transport and Breich Valley ward Councillor Cathy Muldoon's new responsibilities will include chairing the full council meeting when Provost Tom Kerr is unavailable, as well as represent the council at civic and ceremonial events when required.
Armadale and Blackridge ward Councillor Andrew McGuire will now chair the council's Culture and Leisure policy development and scrutiny panel, with responsibility for areas such as sport, arts and libraries.
Both roles were previously occupied by long-standing councillor Dave King, who sadly passed away earlier this year.
