Liberal Democrat Rutland County Councillor Kevin Thomas resigns due to work commitments
Rutland County Councillor Kevin Thomas has resigned as Ward Member for Whissendine with immediate effect.
Councillor Thomas has represented residents in the Whissendine area since March 2016 but no longer feels able to fulfil his role due to growing work commitments.
Its always a great shame when a Councillor has to resign due to changes in circumstances
Mr Thomas has learnt his work would soon take him abroad and he did not want to be
seen in the press as a Councillor who was not properly serving his ward residents from a foreign
country which has happened in some of parts of the country.
It is a shame Cllr Joyce Lucas of Oakham Town Council does not consider the need to
review her commitment to the residents of Oakham instead of choosing to miss the last
four town council meetings.
