Less than a week after being voted in as Deputy Chairman (Membership & Fundraising), Wendy Murwill has stepped down – before the first Isle of Wight Conservative Association (IWCA) Officers’ meeting had even been held.
Less than a week
As reported by OnTheWight, Wendy stepped into the role at the Annual General Meeting on 29th March when the new 2018 IWCA Executive was picked. The Officers met for the first time last Friday (6th April). A week later.
No reason was given for the resignation OnTheWight understands.
OnTheWight attempted to contact Wendy this morning. As we couldn’t find any contact information for her, we went via the only route we could find, her husband’s official Isle of Wight email address – Michael Murwill is one of the councillors (Conservative) for Brading, St Helens and Bembridge – but at the time of writing we hadn’t heard back.
The unexpected vacancy will, OnTheWight understands, be filled by co-opting someone into the position at the next meeting of the IWCA Executive Council.
Update 11 Apr 18: Made it blatantly clear why we had to try and contact Wendy via her husband.
