Powys County Council’s Executive Leader, Councillor David Jones, has announced that he will be appointing his new Cabinet on Friday (December6).
Councillor Jones said: “I am in the process of reviewing the current portfolios in order to create the strongest possible team to meet the challenges the county is facing. It is not a decision to be rushed, we have to ensure the right people are in place to lead and support the council in this challenging climate. In view of the scale of the issues facing the council I intend having a team of ten portfolio holders.
“I will provide more detail about the roles and responsibilities as soon as possible.”
Councillor Jones confirmed he had joined the Powys Independent Alliance (PIA), and that Councillor Tony Thomas would remain the Group Leader of the PIA.
