The Mayor of Harpenden has been charged with misconduct in a public office. John Chambers (Conservative)of Ridgewood Drive, Harpenden, Herts, was charged after an incident in November last year.
Mr Chambers, 67, who was first elected as a town councillor in 1999, will appear before Central Hertfordshire Magistrates Court on 9 February.
The married father-of-two served in the fire and ambulance services and has been presented with the Queen's Award for Long Service and Good Conduct.
**********Update 9th Feb**********
Seems our Mayor has pissed of the local police somewhat by grassing them up to a pub landlord over an intended raid. No doubt in the fullness of time it will turn out that Chambers is a personal friend of landlord or has some financial interest in the pub in question, but we'll have to wait til June for the outcome
