Former Mayor of Maidstone has been a councillor for more than 30 years
Kent county councillor Malcolm Robertson has died aged 67 and left colleagues and friends in a state of shock.
The Lib Dem representative, who also sat on Maidstone District Council, died in the early hours of this morning (Friday) of a suspected heart attack.
Tributes have been left to the Maidstone North East councillor, who represented his constituency for over thirty years and was also Mayor of Maidstone in 1996.
Liberal Democrat group leader Trudy Dean said: “Malcolm was a tower of strength to his constituents, and he gave his time and commitment unstintingly to Allington, Maidstone and County problems.
“He was a gentle man whose work with volunteer organisations as a trustee of the Maidstone Marsham Street Centre demonstrated his concern for those in difficulties in their lives.
“Our thoughts go to Cynthia, his wife, at this time.”
