All change at the County Council as well

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.

  1. I think you are extremely brave! With an ageing population, the increase in demand for care facilities and a decreasing budget, you truly have your work cut out for you.

    Having said that, I have every confidence that you will bring your skills to the post and do the best possible job in the worst possible circumstances.

    Good luck!
