Henley Town Council prepares to welcome Tom Buckley
Henley Town Council is proposing to co-opt local resident Tom Buckley to fill the current vacancy on the Town Council. Tom is not a member of either the Henley Residents Group or of the Conservative Party (or any other political party) but has the respect and support of both in taking on the role.
The vacancy arose when Councillor Paula Isaac resigned. There has since been no request for a by-election to fill the vacancy. Holding a by-election imposes costs on Council Tax payers and councillors felt that imposing these costs could not be justified. We have therefore explored the possibility of co-opting a volunteer to serve for the 18 months that remain of the current council’s term of office.
We are grateful to Tom for his willingness to take on the role, and welcome him to the council.
