Birzeb­buga mayor re­signs

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Birzeb­buga mayor Kevin Barun re­signed from the post and from the lo­cal coun­cil yes­ter­day.

He in­formed fel­low coun­cil­lors of his de­ci­sion, deny­ing that the de­ci­sion was based on the ar­rival in the next few days of the LNG tanker in Marsaxlokk Har­bour.

Mr Barun, who was elected on be­half of the Labour Party, cited pres­sure of work as a rea­son for his res­ig­na­tion.

Birzeb­buga coun­cil has seven mem­bers, five Labour and two Na­tion­al­ist.

In a long state­ment on Face­book, Mr Barun said that al­though the work of a mayor is a “hobby”, it takes so much time and of­ten ex­ceeds that of a full­time job. He said this was af­fect­ing fam­ily time as well as time for per­sonal work, and this led him to take a de­ci­sion to re­sign.

Mr Barun listed some of the projects that the Birzeb­buga lo­cal coun­cil was in­volved in un­der his lead­er­ship, and spoke about the time he al­lo­cated to lis­ten to the com­plaints of the res­i­dents in the lo­cal­ity.

He thanked all those who worked with him.
