Water Park Vacancy on District Council
Cotswold District Council has a vacancy for a Councillor to represent its Water Park ward, following the recent resignation of Judith Aram.
Mrs Aram was elected to the Council at the May 2007 elections but, due to unforeseen work circumstances, has found it increasingly more difficult to attend daytime meetings and give the time to issues within the locality which need addressing.
Mrs Aram said: “It is with deep regret that I have had to tender my resignation, a decision which has not been an easy one to make.
“I felt privileged to have been given the opportunity to represent the local residents and, as a new councillor, have appreciated their support in so many ways.
“However, with the increasing pressure of work, I find I cannot give it my full commitment - this is unacceptable to me, and I would be letting my constituents down if I could not follow up and respond swiftly to their concerns."
The Council has already received a request for an election to be held to fill the vacancy and, if more than one candidate comes forward by the close of nominations at noon on Friday 15th February, an election will be held on Thursday 13th March 2008.
