Welcome Jim McKenna

Jim McKenna has been announced as the new cabinet member for Health and Adult Care. He takes over from Judith Haycock.

Jim was nominated by the Independent group and has been appointed by the Leader to his new role. I've only known him for a year as he was newly elected in last year's election, but has spent that time chairing the health scrutiny committee. However he has a lot of experience in local government as former chief executive of Penwith.

I worked with Judith for four years as members of the Communities Scrutiny Committee on the old council. She put a lot of effort into that role as well as into her cabinet position and has been a pleasure to work alongside. I regret that she has chosen to stand aside but understand the reasons.
