Shropshire Council leadership

Those of you who follow such things will be aware that there has been a change of leadership at Shropshire Council. All councillors, including town and parish councillors, undertake to observe a Code of Conduct that sets out the standards to which they should adhere in carrying out their duties. I, of course, endeavour to uphold this – and I fully support the recent turn of events at Shirehall.

I have, for personal reasons, declined to serve in Shropshire Council’s new Cabinet despite being supportive of its new leader, Cllr Malcolm Pate.
