It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of Cllr Mike O'Brien on the 8th September 2016. Mike was first elected to Medway Council on the 3rd May 2007 and served continuously until his death. Mike was a pillar of the community and was much respected for his work as the lead Councillor for Children Services. Remarkably, Mike visited all 100 plus places of education Medway within six months of his appointment.
The overflowing church at his funeral at St Margaret's Church, Rainham, reflected just how many people Mike touched, helped and supported in both his public and private life. We shall miss him very much and remember him for his enthusiasm and hard work, his dedication to serving the residents of Rainham Central and Medway, but most of all for his ready smile, sense of humour, warmth and loyalty.
