With the sound of election drums rolling across the the borough yet another Hindhead councillor has jumped off the good ship, Waverley.
Councillor Christiaan Hesse’s term as councillor for Hindhead ended just a couple of days ago on March 10th – less than two months before the full council seeks re-election in the May polls.
His sudden departure leaves only Cllr Peter Isherwood (pictured below) carrying the Tory flag for Hindhead.
October last year saw, another Tory Town Councillor Alex Ford booted out of office for non-attendance.
During his year-long term of office, he did not attend a single meeting!
What a slap in the face for the residents of Haslemere, battling to retain the countryside from the threat of development?
Tory Councillor Peter Isherwood threw his hat into the ring and won the seat on Haslemere Town Council in a by-election.
Is this the reason, Councillor Hesse too, is no longer a councillor? Or, has he fallen out of the Tory fold after showing his increasing frustration with many of its decisions?
Perhaps it is time the townsfolk of Haslemere were better served by their elected representatives?
