It is with sadness we report that Emily Price, a university student from Huntingdon, died on May 12, days before she was due to take a seat on Aberystwyth Town Council as a Liberal Democrat councillor. She had been elected to the seat on May 4, thus fulfilling an ambition to stand for the Lib Dems.
Councillor Sarah Conboy, on behalf of the Huntingdonshire Liberal Democrats, said: “The extended Liberal Democrat family would like to express our deepest sorrow at the news of the death of Emily Price.
“We send our condolences to her mum and dad, Natasha and John, and her sisters Katie and Hannah. She had so much to give to society and she had only very recently been elected to the town council in Aberystwyth, the town where she studied for her degree and set down so many roots.
“Emily’s time with her friends and family was cut cruelly short, but we hope that many will seek to inspire and motivate those around them in the way Emily would have done herself. The outpouring of affection for her through social media has been immense, and can only add to the prayers for those who will miss Emily most.”
