Frodsham ward councillor Andrew Dawson announced yesterday that he will resign from Cheshire West and Chester Council to assume a new post in the Falklands Islands government.
Cllr Dawson currently represents Frodsham on Cheshire West and Chester Council, and is one of the Lakes ward councillors on Frodsham Town Council.
In his 13 years on these Councils, he has served as Town Mayor and as a member of Cheshire's Police and Crime Panel, and has represented the United Kingdom on the Council of Europe’s Congress of Regional and Local Authorities.
His resignation will take effect following Cheshire West's next ordinary council meeting on 22nd October, after which he will begin work as Head of Legal Services to the Falkland Islands Government.
In his resignation letter, Cllr Dawson wrote: "It has been a great honour and privilege to serve the wonderful people and community of Frodsham for more than 13 years and to have strived hard to serve their interests as best I could for all of that time.
"It is truly humbling to reflect that over that period of time I have been elected eight times.
“I am leaving Frodsham later this month to take up the position of Head of Legal Services to the Falkland Islands Government.
"My eligibility and suitability for that role are due in no short measure to the experiences I have gained being a Frodsham Councillor.
“I wish both councils and everyone well for the future. Whatever the future brings for me I will always recall my time representing Frodsham on both councils with great fondness and humility.”
