11:10am Thursday 14th March 2013 in News
A council cabinet member has resigned in order to concentrate on his new job as the deputy police and crime commissioner for Sussex.
Steve Waight, who was Worthing Borough Council’s cabinet member for resources, had come under fire since accepting the new £45,000 job earlier this year.
Paul Yallop, the leader of the council, announced that his colleague had tendered his resignation.
He said: “On behalf of the council I wish to formally thank Steve for his dedicated service over many years. We look forward to working with him in his new role.”
Coun Yallop added that he would take on the role until after the county council elections in May.
