New Honorary Aldermen for North Yorkshire
8:56am 18th November 2013
Four new honorary aldermenhave been elected in recognition of their ‘eminent service’ to North Yorkshire.
Former divisional members Michael Knaggs (Malton), Jane Kenyon (Whitby/Mayfield cum Mulgrave), Caroline Seymour (Stokesley) and John Marshall (Harrogate Central) were elected to the honorary roles at a special meeting of the county council this week. All had served at least twenty years on either the county council or one of its predecessor authorities.
Both Ms Kenyon, a Conservative, and Ms Seymour, a Liberal Democrat, served on the county council from 1989 to 2013. Mr Marshall, a Liberal Democrat, served on the authority from 1973 to 1977, and again from 1981 to 2013. Mr Knaggs, a Conservative, served from 1985 to 1989, and from 1997 to 2013.
The four new honorary aldermen received their certificates of office from the chairman of the county council, Councillor Bernard Bateman.
