Councillor Joe Keenan – Resignation from the cabinet of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council.
I have had a disagreement with the Leader over an issue relating to internal party processes and I have decided to resign from the Cabinet. The Labour Group are aware of my reasons and concerns. I have the full support and unanimous backing of the Executive of Guisborough Branch Labour Party on this issue. I have nothing further to add.
Cllr. George R. Dunning Leader R&CBC said
“I would like to thank Cllr. Joe Keenan for his service on the Cabinet and will be making an announcement on the vacant Environment cabinet position at the Full Council on Thursday the 08th of September 2011.”
