In May, I was honoured to became leader of Suffolk County Council Lib Dems and Deputy Leader of Suffolk’s Liberal Democrat, Green and Independent Group. The new Suffolk LDGI Leader is Green councillor, Andrew Stringer.
I continue to be the county council’s first group spokesperson for Women, as well as group spokesperson Highways, Transport and Adult Care, while remaining a passionate campaigner on a diverse range of issues.
David Wood has been a fantastic leader, and I am excited at the prospect of building on the foundation he set out. I am very grateful for all that he has done for Suffolk LibDems over the past years. I am excited to be taking on this new responsibility for the party, and alongside Andrew Stringer, for the LDGI group. We will continue to hold this administration to account and work for the good of residents across Suffolk. As a group we all believe gender balance in politics is important, so it is pleasing to see this better reflected within our own leadership structures.
The LDGI Group was formed following the elections in May 2017, bringing together 12 councillors from different political backgrounds. The Group has pledged to work together to hold the Conservative administration at Suffolk County Council to account, whilst still encouraging free thought, debate and voting within the Group.
