Labour councillor Stonebridge served for several years on RMBC and was forced to resign as Chairman of APC in 2007 because a serious complaint was made against him to former Legal Officer Tim Mumford. Stonebridge has a history of verbally abusing parishioners and Independent councillors .He lost the support of other Labour councillors due to his bizarre behaviour.
Stonebridge was the councillor for Anston & Woodsetts ward on Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council until being unceremoniously dumped by the voters in 2008. He would have known about the CSE scandal during his time as a borough councillor because the 2005 report shows all RMBC councillors were given prior notice of the seminar on CSE.
He is still a Parish Councillor and occasionally attends Anston Parish Council meetings but has nothing to say or contribute except to tell the residents who attend they are “a waste of space” and “should stay at home”.
Democracy. Stonebridge style.
