Elizabeth Hughes - Labour Councillor


Elizabeth Hughes was an active Labour councillor for King's Hedges. I missed the news of her death last month and want to put this right.

No political party has the monopoly on wisdom, honesty or hard work: there are cads among the Conservatives and good souls to be found in the ranks of socialists. Elizabeth was one of those councillors who could see beyond party labels and with whom one to pass a cheery moment during an election count or on campaign. She brought her good name into local politics and left with it intact. It is a legacy that others should aspire to.
