First female, and longest-serving, leader of Milton Keynes council to retire

Isobell McCall

News from Milton Keynes of the retirement of a great trio of councillors:

Long-standing senior Councillors Isobel McCall, Chris Williams and Derek Eastman are all standing down as Liberal Democrat Councillors. Between them they have served the residents of Milton Keynes for 51 years and all held senior positions within Milton Keynes Council.

Isobel McCall, a Councillor for 22 years, was the longest serving Leader of the Council and the only woman in the Council’s history to hold the post. She has also chaired a number of committees.

  1. And Isobel also served as a parish councillor before she came onto MK Council – 25 years of excellent service. Derek aslso served as a Town Councillor and Mayor of both Town and Borough. And Chris too served as a parish councillor in a very active parish for many years. And impressive record for all of them.

  2. She has been instrumental in the success of the Milton Keynes Liberal Democrats since being it’s first Chair at its inception.
