Join us for our inaugural online gathering of the Solo Councillors Network.
The hour-long session will be an opportunity to hear from and ask questions of Cllr John Leech, and then take time to discuss what you would like from the network. All councillors who are the only councillor, or one of two councillors, on an authority are welcome to attend.
About John Leech: John has had a long political career, first being elected to Manchester City Council in 1998 before successfully standing for Parliament in 2005 in Manchester Withington. He held the seat for ten years. He returned to Manchester City Council in 2016 and is currently the only Lib Dem, with Labour holding 95 of the 96 seats! We look forward to welcoming him to this event to share his experience of being a solo councillor and helping to rebuild a council group through to being part of a 39-strong opposition group in 2004.
