On Saturday morning, Cllr David Carr, who has represented Rainham North on Medway Council since 2007, suddenly passed away.
During his time on Medway Council, Cllr Carr sat on more committees than any other councillor, served as part of the Cabinet, and was the Mayor of Medway between 2008 and 2009. While his time on the council was not entirely without controversy, friends, family, and political colleagues have been sharing their warm memories of his time in the chamber.
A lot of work goes into keeping The Political Medway running. We are a volunteer based, non-profit project, and yet we are still trying to produce daily content, cover council meetings as they happen, as well as provide as much information about elections as possible. If you appreciate what we do, please consider making a small donation – one-off or monthly – via Ko-fi to help us cover our costs and keep this ridiculous project going.
