Last year’s deputy chairman of Southborough Town Council, Glenn Lester, has resigned from the council.
A by-election in High Brooms will be held to fill Cllr Lester’s seat.
Glenn Lester told Southborough News:
“I have been struggling with work and council commitments for the past 2 years and now the hub is on track and all the ducks are in a row I have taken the opportunity to step back.
I also became tired of all the party politics of STC , there seems to be a desire to put party before community and I never volunteered to fight, I volunteered to improve our little Town.
That said I do believe the 17 other councillors all do have Southborough best interests at heart.
I will look forward to the Hub from the eyes of a resident instead of a councillor and wish STC the very best of luck bring forward a fantastic asset for us all.”
