Absent councillor dumped by leader

IT WASN’T (thankfully) done in the style of North Korea but it looks like Harlow Council leader has had a mini-purge of his own as he has replaced his portfolio holder for regeneration, cllr Paul Schroder.
Cllr Schroder had, despite holding a key portfolio, missed a considerable number of meetings and had also been fairly tricky to get hold of.
Indeed, those who follow him on twitter would know about his running career with Harlow Running Club and union activities but hardly a word was said about his role as a councillor.
Cllr Schroder has been replaced by the safe pair of hands that is cllr Paul Stumpf. However, cllr Stumpf is standing down as a councillor in May.
