The AGM of Birmingham City Council which incorporates the annual Mayormaking ceremony was due to take place on Tuesday May 21st. However, due to the ill health of the Lord Mayor Elect, Cllr Mike Leddy, it has been delayed until June 11th. Best wishes to Cllr Leddy for a speedy recovery. The current Lord Mayor, Bartley Green Conservative Cllr John Lines, will continue in post until June 11th and the Lord Mayor’s Show will go ahead as planned.
The Conservative Group on Birmingham City Council held its AGM last Monday. Our leader and deputy leader were returned unopposed. There has since been a mini reshuffle of the Conservative Shadow Cabinet and I have been moved to become the Shadow Cabinet Member for a Green, Safe and Smart City.
There’s lots happening in this portfolio (not least the roll out of the wheelie bins) so I am really looking forward to my new job.
