What’s more, you have to try and help people in desperate straits with a limited resource, and face the anger at regular meetings with tenants. So best of luck to whoever replaces Labour’s Julian Fulbrook, who has announced this evening he will relinquish the role at the group’s annual general meeting in May.
There was a wind of a rumour that the queue of people looking to get on the cabinet were interested in edging him from the top table, but Julian isn’t really running away from a fight. He’s stuck out the challenges listed above for the last five years, after all.
Haywardite Danny Beales is the name circling this evening as a possible successor.
After many words on the blog this week, it was interesting that one sentence, the last one on this post, seems to have got the rake up. It took me surprise, as it didn’t feel like a grenade of any sort when it slipped off the keyboard. The irritation, if that’s the right word, appears to be that Cllr Beales is mentioned here, and not Meric Apak. The speedy cavalry at the door was intriguing in itself for a sourceless hack like me though. Apologies to Danny, who nonetheless should consider himself very much loved.
@RichardOsley oh Richard. You need better sources in Group! Smoke and mirrors… (Flattered though).
