Cllr Mandy Perkins elected new Leader

Welwyn Hatfield Conservatives are proud to announce that Cllr Mandy Perkins has been made the new leader of Welwyn hatfield Borough Council. 

With unanimous agreement from her Conservative peers Mandy will take over the reins from retiring leader Cllr John Dean.

Mandy said: 

“To be able to lead the Conservatives at such an important time in our borough’s future is a responsibility that I will not take lightly. 

“Taking over the mantle from John Dean will not be an easy task and I want to ensure my cabinet and I carry on delivering a responsible approach for all residents of Welwyn Hatfield.”

“What has been made very clear during this local election campaign is that much of the public’s trust in local politics has been eroded,” she said.

“This message has been heard loudly and clearly and that is why I want to bring a new focus on enhancing the council’s communication channels, letting residents know what we have been delivering for them whilst also seeking their opinions on local matters – and importantly – listening to them.”

Congratulations Mandy, we are all sure that you will do a fine job of leading our diverse Conservative team into a new era.
