Leader's New Year Report for 2007
Campaigning. We were out in Eston on Saturday and Sunday with Vera Baird introducing the Eston candidates on the doorsteps in the Whale Hill Estate.
This year we have our local elections taking place on Thursday the 03rd of May. Whilst all the "A" wards have been completed we still need candidates for some of the "B" wards and also the "C" wards.
The Labour Group and Joint Trade Union meetings were reconvened during 2006. (Had they fallen out? - CA).
Unison look very likely to be moving out of the Town Hall annex up to Marton Road in Middlesbrough by the end of January 2007, after receiving notice to quit. (The annex is due to be demolished!!!).
The Unison Brancy Secretary has said on a couple of occasions that whoever takes control of the Council on the 3rd of May will have great difficulty when it comes to running the Council.
