Dennis was elected to represent the Strathmore Ward in May 2007. Married to Libby, Dennis is a qualified ballroom dancing teacher and runs Solutions based in Alyth. Dennis is a keen golfer and a long time member of Blairgowrie Golf Club.
Dennis writes: "It has been my privilege for the past ten years to have been the Scottish Conservative Councillor for Ward 2 Strathmore. I am delighted to have been elected once again and I look forward to working with my Scottish Conservative colleague Cllr Colin Stewart in our large diverse ward, Strathmore.
"I have represented my constituents on a large range of issues, such as planning, road safety, antisocial behaviour, housing & education and am always available to listen to constituents concerns.
"The future will continue to bring many challenges and although an increasing population has been good for business, it has inevitably brought pressure on all council services.
"We now face the challenge of a 2nd referendum on whether Scotland should separate from the UK. As a proud Scot I will do all I can to oppose this unnecessary 2nd threat to the UK. It is bad for business and bad for the economy.
"My priorities for Strathmore
1. Continuing to press for improved Road Safety measures.
2. Minimising Council Tax burden on family budgets whilst delivering efficient services.
3. Supporting the development of local health services & care provision.
4. Ensuring that the standard of our roads & pavements are improved.
5. Keep looking for a way to support a local mini bus service for our rural villages.
6. Standing up to the SNP and their obsession with a second, divisive, independence referendum. "
