It's official - Labour Group leadership results
At the first part of the Annual General Meeting of the Labour Group on Brighton and Hove Council this evening, Nancy Platts was elected as Leader of the Group. Nick Childs was elected Deputy Leader; Daniel Yates was elected Deputy Leader (Finance) and Clare Moonan was elected Chief Whip.
This is a strong and balanced leadership team, with a popular choice for Leader, bringing in an excellent newly elected Councillor as Deputy Leader whilst drawing upon the experience of a former Leader (to lead on Finance) and of a former Chief Whip.
Party members will appreciate that this leadership team also reflects the political breadth of the Group itself. The new leadership will need to hit the ground running both in order to respond constructively to the Green Councillors’ limited offer of support in some policy areas, and to ensure that, from the start, the new Group is integrated with the Party.
Most of all, Labour Group needs to implement our manifesto.
Good luck comrades!
