All our team will play a full part within the Council From left to right, Kris Brown, Mirna Juarez, Malcolm Kelly, Richard Kemp, Liz Makinson, Carole Storey, Andrew Makinson
Following our Annual Group Meeting the Liverpool Lib Dems have announced our team within the Council for this council year. I has been re-elected as Leader and Cllr Andrew Makinson has been re-elected as Deputy Leader. The Group team has been joined by Liz Makinson who becomes Group Chair and Whip.
I am honoured to have been elected by the Group to be its Leader for the seventh year. Every year it gets easier and will continue to get easier as we continue to grow. We are a small team but united and highly experienced and I am sure will make an impression within the Council. In particular, as the main opposition Party, we accept the role of holding Mayor Anderson and the Labour Party to account. The fact that we are now on every committee will enable us to peer under every stone and join every dot to find out the truth about decisions being made within the City Council.
Of course, our first responsibility is to our constituents but as part of the City Council we would all be pleased to work with anyone who has concerns within the portfolios that we have adopted for citywide actions”.
