Councillor Sam Kay


The Mayor paid tribute to Councillor Sam Kay, who had died on 4 January 2020 after a short illness.   Sam had first been elected to the Council in May 2019 and although he had only been a councillor for 8 months, he would be sadly missed.


The Mayor and Members sent condolences to his family at this difficult time.


Councillor Sashi Mylvaganam, the Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group, also paid his respects to Sam who had been an active and valued member of his group since 2016.  Sam had been very calm and collected person and had much to contribute.  He would be missed desperately by not only his family but by all who knew him.


Members and officers stood in silence to remember Councillor Sam Kay.
