The Liberal Democrat Group were sad to hear of the death early this morning of Labour Councillor Maureen Rowles, after a lengthy period of illness.
Speaking of her passing Cllr Iain Roberts, Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group, said “It was with much sadness that I heard of Maureen’s death this morning. A stalwart of the Labour Group who was popular with members across the political spectrum, she first became a councillor almost 40 years ago. She was well liked and respected in equal measure. She always spoke with passion and was a stalwart champion of her residents in Brinnington and Central ward. Our thoughts go to her family and many friends both in and out of politics.”
