Election of Leader

Minutes:

Members were advised that one nomination for the position of Leader of the Council had been received: Councillor Steve Siddons.  Councillor Siddons then addressed the Council in support of his nomination, outlining his vision and plans for the Borough.  The appointment of Leader was then put to the vote using voting slips with the following result arising from the first preference votes cast:

Councillor Siddons – 33

Reopen nominations – 13

 

Councillor Siddons was therefore declared Leader of the Council for the ensuing four years.  The outgoing Leader Councillor Bastiman then offered his congratulations to Councillor Siddons.
