Councillor Greg Rose has been re-elected as Mayor of Crowborough and Councillor Martyn Garrett re-elected as Deputy Mayor.
Four new Councillors were welcomed to their first council meeting – Peter Bucklitsch, Geoffrey Higginson, Gareth Owen-Williams and Colin Stocks. You can see a full list of Councillors and their contact details on the Town Council’s website.
Following the election on 2nd May, Crowborough Town Council has three vacancies in the North, South-East and South-West Wards. These vacancies will be filled by a process called co-option, where the existing Councillors will decide who will join them to make up a full complement of 16.
After many years on the Council, this time Sandra Timms and Wendy Scrace decided not stand for re-election, this means of the 13 Councillors the only woman is Cllr Kay Moss. She told CrowboroughLife that she is keen for women to apply to be co-opted:
The population of Crowborough must be approximately fifty percent female. It would be really good to have a better representation on the Town Council. Women have always been in the minority, but I was quite shocked when I realised I was going to be the only woman.
If anybody has got any questions they can contact the Clerk, or I am happy for them to speak to me find out what the role entails and what it is all about.
If you wish to be considered for one of these vacancies, please download an application form from the Council’s website. Completed forms must be returned by 12noon on Wednesday 5th June 2019.
Applications will be considered at the next meeting of Full Council on Tuesday 25th June.
