My Chad article this week focuses on the result of last week's local elections.
I wrote a short column with an attempted non-partisan look at the new make-up of our Council. We wanted change and we've got it, with a much more diverse and mixed set of political groupings that will mean local politicians will simply have to work together to get things done. That's good news.
A huge thank you to all who voted, and to all who were brave enough to stick their head above the parapet and work for their community as candidates.
