Councillor Tom Marshall

Councillor Tom Marshall is the leader of the Scottish Conservative group in North Ayrshire Council, and represents the North Coast & Cumbraes ward.

Born and raised in North Ayrshire, Tom was educated at Largs Academy and Ardrossan Academy.  He graduated in 1969 from Glasgow University with a B.Sc. in Science/Mathematics and worked for British Steel in Lanarkshire and British Aluminium in Invergordon.  He later entered the Teaching Profession and taught for some time in Glasgow before transferring to Largs Academy where, until a few years ago, he was Assistant Principal Teacher of Mathematics.  He currently runs a holiday cottage business in Largs with his wife, Elisabethe.

Tom was elected as a Conservative & Unionist Councillor to Cunningham District Council in 1988 where he served for two terms of 4 years, first in the Fairlie, Skelmorlie and Millport Ward and later in the Largs South Ward.  Formation of Unitary Councils meant that he could no longer continue as a Councillor and a Teacher for the same Authority and so he retired from the Council in 1996.

Tom stood again in 2012 and was successfully re-elected, this time to North Ayrshire Council, representing the multi-member Ward 8 - North Coast and Cumbraes.

Councillor Marshall can be contacted either by telephone, email or letter.  He is able to meet constituents by prior appointment at a convenient location.
