Motion: to elect a Leader and receive the Leader’s appointments
‘Following the resignation of Cllr Ben Ingham as the Leader that the Council elect
a new Leader for the remainder of the civic year and that Council receive the
Leader’s appointments of the Deputy Leader and the Cabinet and their Portfolios’.
Owl is adding as a footnote the comment Angie East made on the recent post concerning Cllr. Mike Davies’ resignation from the Conservatives in West Devon over Boris Johnson’s backing for Dominic Cummings’ “no regrets, no apology”. Cllr. Davies is a former Mayor of West Devon Borough Council.
Her comment reads:
Well done, Cllr MIke Davies.
A man of principle.
What will it take for principles, integrity and responsibility to be recognised and valued by our Prime Minister?
Well, how about if a few of our Conservative Councillors at EDDC took a leaf out of Cllr Davies’ book?
I’m not talking about the ones who will always be self-serving, always be ‘back -your-chums- no-matter-what’ animals.
There ARE some Conservative Councillors at EDDC who are really highly principled, put their public first and don’t always toe the party line.
I’d suggest that now is the time for them to choose to be Independent.
