Leigh-on-Sea Town Council would like to extend a warm welcome to their newest Councillor, John Duprey. Cllr Duprey will be overseeing the Highlands Ward alongside Cllr Vivien Rosier and Cllr Mark Bromfield.
As there was no call for an election from residents of the ward, a co-option process was held with 4 interested parties at a Council meeting on Tuesday 19th December. John Duprey was the successful candidate.
Cllr Duprey was previously Headteacher of Belfairs School for many years. Now retired he is the Chair of Governers for Southend Adult Community College.
With his years of governance experience the Town Council are certain that Cllr Duprey will be a real asset to the residents of Leigh.
