I am chair of Grantham North Community Group and Greyfriars is one of two groups I represent.
Coun Mike Taylor was until recently the long-serving councillor for this ward. I have attended meetings here for at least 10 years and Mike, I am sure, has represented tenants here even longer.
He has attended my Greyfriars bi-monthly meetings whenever possible and has always given full support for me and council tenants. Also his sterling work over many years in the SKDC chamber has been without reproach.
When reading of the way he was recently de-selected, I was much reminded of Shakespeare’s tragic play, Julius Caesar.
Mike has been a titan of energy and commitment to all, even his recent health problem has not deterred him from his duty to those he represents.
Mike is not alone as Jean, his wife, is also a very active ward councillor, who has also been as conscientious in representing her tenants.
I wish them both well for the future and hope they carry on representing the good people of Grantham as they have done in the past.
