Yesterday I was advised that Catherine Hutton, the current Cabinet Member for Adult Services was standing down because of work commitments (a seriosu issue for some Councillors) and was asked if I would take over that portfolio. One which is, arguably, the most challenging in the Council.
As someone that relishes a challenge, I have accepted. I could say more, but it is probably best to link to the news release from Shire Hall.
Even on the first day, the enormity of the task that I face is becoming very, very apparent.
