Lib Dems call for a united opposition to Labour on Redcar and Cleveland Council
As the largest opposition group on Redcar & Cleveland Council, Liberal Democrats are concerned that the insecurity of Labour’s grip on power caused by recent defections will be disastrous for the borough. Labour have now lost their overall majority.
Lib Dem Group Leader Councillor Glyn Nightingale (pictured), said:
“The Liberal Democrats are opening talks with other opposition councillors to explore ways of steering the Council to more stable ground. The Council should be listening to what the public say and putting people’s needs before politics.
“I hope that opposition groups can come to an agreement which will work for the benefit of the wider community.”
