Councillor Sally Symington steps down from Cabinet role

Councillor for Berkhamsted West ward Sally Symington

Councillor Sally Symington has recently stepped down from her Cabinet role as Corporate and Commercial Portfolio Holder, following her selection as the Parliamentary Candidate for South West Hertfordshire. Sally will continue in her role as Councillor for the constituents in the Berkhamsted West Ward.

Councillor Symington said: “I have stepped down from my position to concentrate on campaigning for the forthcoming General Election, in what is a key parliamentary seat for the Liberal Democrats. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time serving in the Cabinet for the people of Dacorum. I am proud to have set the course for the new Liberal Democrat administration’s priorities to protect services and support the most vulnerable in the community, whilst delivering sound financial outcomes."

Councillor Ron Tindall, Leader of the Council, said: "Sally will be missed, but I wish her every good fortune and look forward to welcoming her as a Member of Parliament after the General Election."

Councillor Tindall will assume responsibility for the Corporate and Commercial portfolio until a new Cabinet member is appointed.
