A Labour councillor for Liscard is standing down, citing personal reasons for his decision.
Cllr Dave Brennan gave a speech at a Labour meeting to announce his resignation. He also made clear that he will remain a member of the Labour Party, and will continue to campaign for Labour.
Cllr Brennan was elected to represent the people of Liscard in May 2021 with a 57% share of the vote, more than double his nearest rival, Jane Owens of the Conservative Party.
A by-election to elect a new ward councillor will take place this August or September.
Cllr Brennan said, “It has been an honour to represent the people of Liscard since May 2021 and to work with members of the branch as well as my fellow ward councillors Daisy and Jan. My reasons are mostly personal. As a family we have suffered a couple of recent bereavements since I was selected. Sadly, we also have more close family members with serious health issues in need of support.”
Wirral Labour Council Leader Cllr Janette Williamson said, “It’s been a pleasure to have worked with David in Liscard, and we are sorry to see him go. I know this has been a difficult time for him and as a Labour group we thank him for his hard work and wish him every success in the future.”
