As the new Leader of Sheffield City Council I would like to thank the people of Sheffield for voting Labour at last Thursday’s local elections.
I was born and bred in Sheffield and I am committed to doing everything possible to fight for the people of this city.
Labour now hold 49 of the 84 seats on the council. I am humbled that people across the city have put their faith in Labour.
We have been given a strong mandate for change and will get to work straight away to deliver the best deal for Sheffield in these very tough times. We will stand up for Sheffield, we will be honest with people and will do our utmost to protect Sheffield from government cuts.
Coun Julie Dore
