Gordon Seekings steps down as councillor

Lib Dem Voice doesn’t note the resignations of all councillors, but Gordon Seekings – for 22 years Lib Dem councillor for Northgate in Crawley – will be well known to many from the party’s membership services. Here’s how Crawley News reports it:

Cllr Gordon Seekings, who represented Northgate for 22 years, cited “personal reasons” for his departure. He left his Crawley Borough Council post immediately after the announcement, meaning Northgate will be missing one councillor until the by-election. …

Cllr David Shreeves, deputy leader of the council’s Labour group, added: “Gordon’s efforts as a councillor have been very valuable to the town and he has always shown fantastic dedication to the people of Northgate.”

Cllr Seekings was first elected in 1987 and currently works for the Liberal Democrat party in Westminster.The resignation leaves Cllr Seekings’ wife, Linda Seekings, as the only Liberal Democrat on the council. The by-election will be held within four weeks.
