A TOWN councillor has been removed from her position after failing to attend meetings for six months.
Sarah Lunnon, of the Green Party, was removed from Stroud Town Council at the authority’s meeting on Monday evening, after missing six consecutive months’ of meetings.
Town councillor Vanessa Price, of Labour, said: “It’ a shame to see a fellow councillor be removed from their role, however it’s been a concern of mine for some time about Sarah’s absence not only from her council duties but from the required involvement in her ward and the communities she serves.
“I understand Sarah’s focus may be on other causes and she may have underestimated the commitment the councillor role requires.”
Removing Ms Lunnon from the council was not the decision of Stroud Town Council – it happens automatically under the local Government Act 1972.
