STATEMENT FROM HERTSMERE LABOUR PARTY ISSUED 20 JULY 2016 FOLLOWING GUILTY VERDICT AGAINST CLLR DAVID BURCOMBE IN ST ALBANS CROWN COURT
"Hertsmere Labour calls on Cllr Burcombe to resign with immediate effect. It is intolerable that local residents are left with no choice other than to be represented by somebody who has been found guilty of sexual assault. It is unacceptable that officers and staff have to come into contact with him. We remind Hertsmere Tory Leader Morris Bright and local MP Oliver Dowden that Hertsmere Labour consistently warned them that Cllr Burcombe was not a suitable candidate for public office. Sadly we were proven right. "
