Council Committee Has New Chair

Amanda Martin was elected unopposed as the Chairman of the Policy and Resources committee, the panel that deals with Council finances last night.

David Pearson was elected as Vice Chair, also unopposed.

Amanda led a tribute to islands’ photographer Frank Gibson whose funeral was held yesterday. Referring to Mr Gibson as a, “well-loved member of the community” Councillor Martin said that he served the community better than most people have had the opportunity to do and she voiced gratitude for his service on behalf of the Council.

    I agree with Frank. Hopefully common sense can now prevail, particularly on spending.

    Excellent news for the islands that Cllr Martin is the chair of such a key committee.
