It is with a heavy heart that Councillor Edward Sims has announced that he is standing down from Aylesbury Town Council and Aylesbury Vale District Council. Edward has been active in Aylesbury politics since 2012, and was first elected to both Councils in 2015. He has just been permanently transferred by his company and will unfortunately be standing down from both Councils.
Edward said, “It has been an absolute honour to be able to represent the wonderful residents of Central and Walton on both the Town and the District Councils. Over the years, it has been a pleasure to meet so many residents. I have always tried my best to help residents and defend their interests on both Councils. I am sad that I will no longer be able to serve the people of Central and Walton as their Councillor.
I would like to thank everyone for making me feel so very welcome when I first moved to Aylesbury in 2012, and for all of your kind wishes on my marriage last year. I have thoroughly enjoyed being your Councillor and working alongside my wonderful colleague Barbara, our other excellent Conservative Councillors as well as our long-standing local MP, David. I hope to be able to return to Aylesbury in the near future.
I look forward to receiving regular updates from Barbara and other friends in Aylesbury as Aylesbury will always have a place in my heart. I am sure that Aylesbury and her people will continue to go from strength to strength, and that Aylesbury will continue to be a great place to live and work."
