Long hours but claimed no expenses
Following his success in retaining the Old Laund Booth ward for the Lib-Dems, Brian Newman says he has big shoes to fill but I wonder if he realises just how big they are.
John David was a councillor of the old school who accepted that serving the public was a privilege, not a passport to personal gain.
Records show that, despite many years of working long and no doubt often unsocial hours, he never took one penny in expenses.
Can Brian tell us if he is going to continue in the same vein?
