Mr Guy Clark said: “Councillor Moran was incredibly supportive when I arranged for Her Majesty the Queen to come to Greenock in 2012.
“I was delighted she accepted my invitation to come as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations and the effort Inverclyde Council and Councillor Moran put in to ensure it was a success was remarkable.
