Lowestoft mayor to be new leader of Labour group on Waveney District Council

Waveney District Council's Labour group has a new leader, following the appointment of Tod Sullivan on Sunday evening.

He replaces Julian Swainson who is to step down after a year in the role.

Mr Sullivan was first elected to Waveney District Council in May 2010 and represents the Whitton ward in Lowestoft.

He is currently the Mayor of Lowestoft and will formally take up his new role at the end of the mayoral term next month.

Mr Sullivan was elected unopposed at the Labour Group's annual meeting and says he feels honoured to be given this opportunity.
