Henley Town Councillor Paula Isaac has resigned from the Council this week.
Paula, a member of the Henley Residents Group was elected in May 2019. Paul said, “With sadness, I have resigned from my role as a Henley Town Councillor. The past year and a half has been an incredibly tough time for myself, my husband and our children. After a lot of deliberation, I decided that I needed to take a step back from all commitments and spend time with my family in private to concentrate on my health.
“I understand that this news will be disappointing for those who have been so supportive and voted for me to become a member of the council. I would like to apologise to them and assure everyone that this decision was not taken lightly.”
“I have been very privileged and honoured to represent the residents of Henley for the last two years and I am very grateful for the opportunity.
“I would also like to take the opportunity to thank all of my Councillor colleagues, the Henley Residents Group and all of the Henley Town Council staff for their amazing support and kindness at what has been an enormously challenging and emotional time. ”
“I will be continuing my community work around Henley as soon as I am able to, so Henley hasn’t seen the last of me yet!”
Chair of the Henley Residents Group, Gill Dodds said, “We all hope that Paula will be able to re-join our Councillors at some time in the future. She has been a very hard working Councillor and a pleasure to work with.”
Henley Mayor, Councillor Sarah Miller will make a statement at the full Council meeting tonight and thanking Paula for her hard work.
No decision has been made on filling the vacant Councillor’s seat.
