Weymouth Businesswoman Says Mayor Should Resign

Mayor Kate Wheller

12:58pm 10th October 2014

A local businesswoman is calling for Weymouth's Mayor to step down.

Denise Cameron from Quayside Leather in Weymouth says she's outraged by Councillor Kate Whellers' comments that tourism isn't the most important business for the town, as reported on Wessex FM.

Denise says the tourist trade keeps her business going.

"If it wasn't for tourism, a lot of the little independent stores like myself, wouldn't survive the winter."

"She needs to come and spend a few hours talking to the local traders to get their reactions, as I don't think a single person would agree with what she's said. Its awful."
