Cllr Rogers suspended following involvement in dispute

Cllr Paul Rogers

THE MAN in line to be the next Mayor of Wrexham has been suspended from the council for three months.

Brymbo Councillor Paul Rogers, a member of the ruling Independent / Conservative coalition group, has received the suspension after an investigation by the council’s standards committee, for his involvement in a dispute between the driver of a vehicle and a bus driver outside Ysgol Tanyfron.
Cllr Rogers is the current Deputy Mayor of Wrexham and is due to succeed current Mayor Cllr Brian Cameron in mid-May.

In a statement addressing his suspension, Cllr Rogers said: “Two years ago there was a disagreement between a driver of a bus and a car outside Ysgol Tanyfron. The incident lasted around 40 minutes.
“At the time I acted in good faith in the interests of children, parents and passengers to try and resolve the situation.
“This resulted in a complaint which has been considered by the Council’s Standards Committee.
“I respect the Committee’s decision and accept the short suspension I have been given.”

“Once this has concluded I will continue to serve my constituents as Councillor for Brymbo and Tanyfron”.
