There will be at least one new face to this multi-ward after the SNP's incumbent councillor Gail Robertson announced her decision to stand down.
Equally, the official tally of the parties' share of the first preference vote across Scotland as a whole, which was published today by Elections Scotland, confirms that the SNP was well ahead of the rest of the pack.
"In standing up to the SNP's drive for separation, she is now more in touch with Scotland than Nicola Sturgeon".
She continued: "Last week's election result provides a great springboard for the general election here in Angus".
The SNP amassed more councillors than in the 2012 local elections, thereby remaining the largest party in local government north of the border. Labour needed all 43 of its candidates to win in order to maintain overall control.
The Scottish National party leader said that although the Conservatives did well "by their standards", they did so by taking votes from Labour, not by eating into SNP support.
Over one in ten votes on May 4 were cast for independent candidates - in the Highlands and the Islands in particular, council elections are often still genuinely local rather than partisan battles.
Ms Davidson said her party will "speak up for the millions of Scots who have had enough of the uncertainty and division of the last few years" and "stand up for everyone who doesn't want a second referendum on independence".
The former SNP leader said: "I think most people would have said that was a bad decision for the Prime Minister to break her word on the election, but as my dad always says you play the ball as it lies, and where the ball lies is we're fighting an election campaign and we intend to fight it and to win it".
The SNP is claiming victory in Glasgow despite narrowly failing to take overall control of the city council as Labour was ousted from power after almost 40 years.
But, in contrast to 2015, it is no longer Labour who the SNP have most reason to worry about.
Liberal Democrats picked up 6,872 while Labour gained 4,407 first votes.
Alex Salmond has accused the Tories of making "vainglorious boasts" about their chances of winning his seat in the General Election, as he warned Ruth Davidson she could be brought "back down to earth with a bump" by the voters.
"As is the case right across Scotland, the choice in Gordon is clear".
"There is no doubt, given that the SNP are doing no more than treading water, they are potentially vulnerable to the Conservatives in these seats", he said.
"This was never about getting power for the sake of it, or getting rid of Labour for the sake of it, it was because we believe we can create a better city, we can make improvements for Glasgow's neighbourhoods and Glasgow's citizens".
This is the third local government election in a row that the party has made losses.
