First Ever Labour Leader of CEC
Labour's Sam Corcoran has been elected leader of Cheshire East Council — with Independent group leader Craig Browne appointed as his deputy.
The council was formerly led by the Conservatives since its creation in 2009.
Cllr Corcoran, who represents Sandbach Heath and East ward, was elected the leader of the council at a meeting of full council (22 May). Cllr Corcoran immediately appointed Cllr Browne as deputy leader.
Cllr Corcoran will now chair the cabinet. He is also the leader of the Labour group and has been a Cheshire East councillor since 2011.
