As predicted, Cllr Sachin Shah has been elected as the leader of the Labour group and will lead the council from May 2016. Cllr Keith Ferry remains as the deputy leader.
We wish them well!
Sachin, Bsc (Hons), a Queensbury ward councillor, was first elected to the council in 2010. He is Finance and Major Contracts Portfolio Holder and is likely to retain this responsibility.
Tory group leadership election result will be out tomorrow (13/4/16) – if Cllr Ashton wins, she will be a good intellectual match to Sachin!
