Councillor Julia Potts just couldn’t help putting a little sting in the tail of her comments when she commiserated with the victim/s of Monday’s court ruling to send a former Godalming Mayor and member of both Godalming and Waverley councils – including its powerful EXECUTIVE to prison for nine years.
By adding: ‘That it was clear that none of the crimes had been committed by Mr. Thornton whilst he was a councillor.”
So that makes it alright then does it Councillor Potts ?- Alright as long as it’s not on your watch!
Julia Potts, Leader of Waverley Borough Council, said: “On behalf of everyone at Waverley Borough Council and Godalming Town Council, we are all appalled by this news. My thoughts at this time are with the victim.
“It is clear that none of the crimes were committed during his time as a councillor.
“From the moment we were made aware of the investigation, both councils have been fully cooperative and supportive of the police and their enquiries.”
