Stuart and Helene Cullimore unable to stand for re-election

Mebyon Kernow has today publicised the news that Stuart and Helene Cullimore will not be standing for re-election on May 2nd because of health issues.

Stuart Cullimore was first elected to Camborne Town Council in a by-election in 2000. He served on Kerrier District Council from 2007 until it was abolished in 2009, when he was elected to serve on Cornwall Council. Helene Cullimore was also first elected to Camborne Town Council in a by-election. Her victory was in 2002 and she was elected to serve on Kerrier District Council from 2003 until 2009.

In a joint statement issued today, Stuart and Helene said:

“It is with deep regret that we have taken the decision not to put ourselves forward for re-election to Camborne Town Council and Cornwall Council. This is because we have significant health issues and will be unable to continue as councillors for now.

“It has been a privilege to serve the Parish and people of Camborne whom we love. We hope we have served you to the best of our abilities and we would like to thank the people of Camborne who gave us the honour of representing them"

“We hope that the people of Camborne show their support for Mebyon Kernow in this coming election and back our candidates, who are 100% committed to Cornwall .”

I have paid tribute to the work of Stuart and Helene with the following statement.

“Stuart and Helene Cullimore have been exceptional councillors and have represented Camborne with great tenacity for many years. I am disappointed that they are not standing in the May elections, but I am confident they will still be doing everything they can to support the MK team win a better deal for Camborne.”
