He continued to wish his Tory colleagues and friends all the best, Trafford Labour who now run the council came out in support of Anstee with Sale Moor Councillor Mike Freeman saying:
“Sean thank you for the service you have given to #Trafford we agreed on very little but know you always did what you thought was right and genuinely cared about our residents. All the best for the future!!.”
Broadheath councillor Amy Whyte simply said “All the best for the future.”
