Quitting: Coun Lavalette

Have your say

One of Preston’s most active councillors has announced he is standing down for family reasons.

Indpendent Socialist Michael Lavalette is to quit the authority after 10 years, insisting: “I no longer feel I can give constituents what they deserve from their local councillor.

“It’s been a pleasure and an honour, but I have a family member who is very ill and it’s very difficult for me right now to commit the amount of time I would like to being a member of the council.”
