It is with great sadness that I pass on the following message.
Exeter City Council’s lead for Communities and Culture, Cllr Paul Bull, passed away last night. Paul, 60, who was the councillor for St Thomas, had been battling cancer.
His wife Cllr Rachel Sutton, who serves on the council as lead for City Development and as Labour’s Group Deputy Leader, was by his side.
Labour Leader Pete Edwards said: “Paul was Mr Community. He was an extraordinary person – his kindness was unlimited. He was knowledgeable and talented in so many areas of life, but his real passion was serving the community here in Exeter. Simply put – this city is a better place for everything he did.
His passion, his beliefs and his commitment will carry on. All our thoughts are with Rachel and the family.”
