Making a difference in local communities

There are lots of people in our communities going out of their way to make a real difference within their local neighbourhoods and following the County Council’s local elections on 4 May, 62 councillors were chosen by the people to represent them.

I would like to thank everyone who voted in the election as well as all those who stood as candidates. We will be welcoming 31 new councillors to the role and I am looking forward to working with them to help improve the lives of people in Staffordshire.

I would also like to thank those councillors who will not be re-joining us in the council chamber this year for all their hard work for the council and for the communities they represented.

Being a County Councillor is an important role and as the voice of the community, they play a vital role making democracy work in Staffordshire.  Working together they’ll make decisions which affect everybody, with overall responsibility for the work the council does – for its policies and how well it performs.

Our priority over the coming four years, as it has been will be to continue to grow our local economy, create better jobs and support more people to lead healthier, more independent lives for as long as possible.

Furthermore, Staffordshire is now one of the strongest economic regions in the UK and working together we will continue to make it a great place to live, work and visit.
