A FORMER Stockport mayor facing court over after being involved in a fatal car crash has been suspended from the Liberal Democrat Party.
Councillor Shan Alexander, 65, who was appointed as Stockport’s first Aisan mayor in 2005, has also been suspended from her position as a Stockport magistrate.
Her automatic suspension from the Lib Dems means she won’t be allowed to vote on party decisions or serve as Stockport’s executive member for finance until her court case has been dealt with.
Coun Alexander, of Hawk Green, was behind the wheel of her Mercedes when she was involved in a crash in Nether Alderley on May 10 this year.
But Mallory Perry, 66, from Stockport – a back-seat passenger in Mrs Alexander’s car – suffered fatal injuries in the crash and Coun Alexander has been asked to appear at Macclesfield Magistrates’ Court on October 21.
