Richard Williams is standing down as both leader and as a city councillor. His resignation was announced during a special meeting to consider a report over allegations that he had misled the public last year.
The meeting voted Cllr Jacqui Rayment (Lab) as the new Leader of the Council. The council’s annual general meeting is scheduled for 15th May, at which point the Leader for the year 2013-2014 will be elected.
“I’d like to pay tribute to Richard for acting honourably and leaving the council today. I am humbled to have been elected until the council’s AGM. It’s a sad day for Southampton politics, but the work carries on. The administration has a clear vision for Southampton which we will continue to work towards.”
