(2008) Conservative Cllr. David Elderton
A CONSERVATIVE councillor has paid a former colleague £6,000 after he was hit with a libel action.
David Elderton, who represents Wirral’s West Kirby and Thurstaston Ward, made allegations via email about Margaret Kalil in September 2006.
His allegations of financial impropriety and gross incompetence about the former chairwoman of West Wirral Tories came to light after a bitterly fought re-selection process for local elections.
In the out-of-court settlement the councillor issued an unreserved apology and now faces paying Mrs Kalil’s legal costs after admitting the allegations were unfounded.
