AM Pays Tribute to First Woman to Chair Monmouthshire County Council

Assembly Member for Monmouth, Nick Ramsay, has expressed his sadness on hearing of the passing of Olive Evans, the first woman to chair Monmouthshire County Council in 2004 during Nick’s first year as County Councillor for Mardy Ward, Abergavenny.

Speaking today Nick said: “Olive was a highly competent member of the council and a lovely person who became a good friend.

“A former teacher, she was a tribute to her profession, and was always encouraging and inspiring people to be the best they could be.

“Farewell Olive, your legacy will live on in all the people you helped and supported.”
