Candice Atherton,often known as Candy,born September 21st 1955,
died October 30th 2017("suddenly" per the BBC,"unexpectedly"
according to the Plymouth Herald).
She was a longtime member of the Labour party,first elected to
office as a local councillor in London,then failing to be elected
in Wiltshire,before being selected (from an all-female shortlist
later ruled illegal) to seek election to Parliament from Cornwall,
which she achieved twice,in 1997 and 2001,before being defeated
in 2005.In recent years she had been a local councillor in Cornwall,
to which she moved after her election to Parliament.
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
