Plans to fill space left by Cllr Brian Goodwin

Politics marches on and plans to fill the space left by Cllr Brian Goodwin are well under way

To be honest I'm still in shock. Having been out of the loop for much of May I was unaware of Brian's passing.

He was one of the few councillors that I knew personally and in a non political context. Brian was an honest-to-goodness, does-his-job, cares-about-peoople, decent councillor. We have too few of his like.

Nostalgia does not a council run, it would seem.

Thanet News Network Westgate-on-Sea Election Announced

The process to fill a vacancy on Thanet District Council following the sad death of Cllr Brian Goodwin has started. If there is more than one candidate then an election to fill the vacancy will be held on Thursday 5 July 2012.

Maybe, later, I'll look at the impact on the balance of power. For now I need to come to terms with the news, old though it might be.
