A statement from Councillor Terry Richardson, Leader of Blaby District Council, following the sad death of former Leader and District Councillor Ernie White at the age of 76.

"Ernie White, the previous Leader of Blaby District Council died at home yesterday after a short illness. Having had the privilege of taking over as Leader from Ernie I should like to offer condolences to his wife Hilary and their family of behalf of all Councillors and Officers.

Ernie was one of those rare individuals who placed public service above all else, and, served on this Council for some 20 years, becoming Leader in 2004 a position he maintained until standing down in 2015. It is fair to say that he helped shape this Council into the great Council it is today. He was truly dedicated to making Blaby a better place and I firmly believe that his legacy will be that he achieved that goal.

He was hugely respected across the political spectrum and by those he represented in his ward of Stanton and Flamville and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Terry Richardson
Leader, Blaby District Council"
