New deputy leader for county council

LINCOLNSHIRE County Council has announced its new deputy leader.

Coun Eddy Poll will fill the void left by Barry Singleton, who sadly died over the summer.

Coun Poll said: “Barry will certainly be a hard act to follow. He was passionate about his work, and his loss will be keenly felt. But I look forward to the challenges this new role will bring.”

Councillor Poll will continue in his work in his previous role as executive member for economic development.
