Cllr Sue Johnson Obituary, Death – We’re sorry to be the ones to break the news, but Councilwoman Sue Johnson died away early today. Sadness fills our hearts as we do this. Sue, at 65 years old, has served as a Labour councillor in St. Ann’s for the past 16 years after first being elected in 2007. In 2007, she was initially elected to her current position. She had unwavering support for the people living in the ward she was in charge of serving and for whom she was an advocate.
We have little doubt that many of you had the chance to get to know her and work closely with her during her tenure on the council. She has served in the past as Chair of the Children and Young People’s Inspection Committee and as a member of the Corporate Parenting Board for our foster children. She was also a member of the committee, thus she had a voice in its decisions.
She served as the Overview and Scrutiny Committee’s Deputy Chair from 2017 to the end of 2019. Until 2019, she served in this role. She has served on the Joint City and County Health Scrutiny Committee before, from 2007 to 2014. During that time, she was a contributing member of the committee. Sue had been sick for a while and was planned to retire from politics at the next election,
but she remained a devoted fan of Nottingham even as she battled her sickness. Sue was still a huge fan of Nottingham even though she knew she would have to leave office after the next election. Despite the fact that she was leaving her employment, Sue remained a fervent fan of Nottingham. We’d want to use this time to express our gratitude for all the years she’s spent representing St. Ann’s residents and the City Council.
We’d want to take this occasion to express our gratitude for all of her hard work and dedication over the years. As we struggle through this challenging time at the office, her family is at the forefront of our minds and prayers.
