Leaders Week

When I was elected to the role of Labour Group Leader at North West Leicestershire District Council just over a week ago one of the things I said I was going to do was seek to make my position transparent to my party and the general public.

As a result I said I would regularly summarise my activities, as far as possible on a weekly basis, and publish them to this blog.

So here goes...

In the past week I have:
  • Following group AGM submitted (with Deputy Leader) group officer paperwork to Officers.
  • Held an introductory meeting, via telephone, with Leader of the Council, Cllr Richard Blunt.
  • Held an introductory briefing with Chief Executive, Ms Christine Fisher.
  • Over the weekend worked with Group Whip on finalising nominations to external community bodies (for approval at Council).
  • Also over the weekend finalised Labour Group shadow cabinet for the forthcoming year.
  • Attended evening Labour Group and Council AGM.
  • Attended evening Standards & Code of Conduct training for members.
  • Arranged briefings for shadow cabinet members from officers.
  • Assisted local people with casework including holding a meeting with officers to discuss the (re)establishment of Woodside Residents Association.
I have no doubt that this week was not usual being more about administration rather than the community work of a councillor, however, as the term beds down I'm sure much more of that will come along.
