A second Arlesey town councillor has resigned in the space of three hours.

Kathy Lindskog was elected to Arlesey Town Council as a member of the Independents for Arlesey group in May, a party which sought to promote openness and transparency for the people of the town.

But Kathy announced this morning via the Arlesey UK Facebook page that she could not longer serve on the town council.

She follows fellow Independents for Arlesey member Jason Auburn, who announced his resignation by the same method earlier this morning.

“It is with great sadness that I have resigned as a councillor for Arlesey with immediate effect,” Kathy said.
