MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay has congratulated County Councillor Brian Strong on taking over as the new Chairman of Monmouthshire County Council at a ceremony held at County Hall on Tuesday.
Speaking after the ceremony, Mr Ramsay said:
“Brian will be a first class Chairman and will have the able support of Jim Higginson, the new Vice Chairman. As a long serving councillor and former Mayor of Usk, Brian is a well known and respected figure in the local community. Monmouthshire will assuredly be in safe hands under his stewardship.
“I wish him every success.”
