Honiton Town Council has lost yet another member, after the eighth resignation so far this year was announced today (Aug 19).
Caroline Kolek has taken the decision to stand down having served on the council for six years, two of which were as mayor.
She told Honiton Nub News: “It is with some sadness I resign from Honiton Town Council, however I want to achieve much more for our wonderful community.
“I believe I can only do this by working with Honiton Forward.
“Our stand in the town centre last Saturday was extremely positive, with huge support for what we are aiming to achieve.
“It has been a pleasure to serve as a councillor for the last six years and the two years I spent as mayor was a real honour.
“For those two years my diary was packed attending numerous events, working with local groups and representing the town. Doing this alongside a full time teaching career was hard work – but such fun. I hope I served the Town well.
“My focus now lies working within the community.”
Honiton Town Council is reduced to just nine councillors, with one member unable to partake in council business due to health reasons.
Vacancies will remain unfilled until an election can be held next year, due to a significant number of Honiton residents writing to the Monitoring Officer at East Devon District Council – read more here.
Honiton Nub News contacted Mayor John Zarczynski, but he failed to comment.
