Expectations for York's Chief Exec
12:57pm 8th June 2011
The council’s new Labour administration has moved quickly to set out its expectations of the council’s most senior officer.
The authority’s chief executive is now responsible for ensuring the administration’s priorities are implemented over the next four years. Labour’s new council leader James Alexander said it was important to be clear about expectations, and that the chief executive supports his view.
“The chief executive has my support in making sure the council delivers our priorities for York residents. I felt that formalising these expectations was a positive step to take in moving forward and being clear about what I want from her over the next four years. I have written to the chief executive to this effect.
“She has performed well up to this point and I have every faith that she will oversee the changes required to turn this authority into a top performing council once again.
“The chief executive will play a crucial role in ensuring the council is focused on our priorities, and in making sure we make good our promises to residents. Labour has been given a mandate and the hard work for the cabinet and senior management team begins now”.
