Pembrokeshire County Council Leader, Councillor Jamie Adams, has announced a new member of the authority’s cabinet.

Councillor Alison Lee – a member of the Labour Group who represents Pembroke Dock Central – takes on the portfolio for Housing.

Councillor Adams said he looked forward to working constructively with a member of the opposition in the cabinet.

He went on: “As a Labour councillor, Alison has shown great commitment to her council ward and to her constituents.

“She also recognises that to operate effectively in cabinet, one must put political considerations to one side and consider the wider picture for the greater benefit of the people of Pembrokeshire.

“I hope that council members and the public will recognise the appointment as a sign of my determination to ensure that a cross-section of voices and opinions are heard in cabinet.”
