Dedicated to public service

First published in Opinion

THERE are councillors and there are councillors. Collecting elected positions isn’t the same as actually doing things.

However, David Fox who died yesterday at the age of 79, was one of those elected representatives who made a difference. He was a county and borough councillor and he chaired the Dorset Fire Authority. He was twice Mayor of Christchurch, his public service stretched over decades and he was recognised by the Queen in the New Years Honours in 1993. As friends, colleagues and political adversaries will readily attest, was a kind and decent man. He’ll be missed.
