Surrey County Council Chairman announces theme 2020/21
Published: 08 July 2020
Surrey Stands Together
I would like to say an enormous 'thank you' for voting me in for another year as Chairman of Surrey County Council. It is my honour and privilege to serve the county of Surrey and its residents – particularly during the challenging times that lay ahead of us.
I will do my utmost to serve and help our great county and all those who live here.
I would like to take this opportunity to announce my theme for the forthcoming year. It is Surrey Stands Together – recognising staff and volunteers who have pulled together to support Surrey residents during the Covid-19 outbreak. I will pay particular focus to those staff and volunteers working with Surrey's youth. We have a responsibility to the next generation and COVID-19 has disproportionately hit young people.
This leads me on to announce that Surrey's Young Mayor, Jacob Wrenn, has successfully been appointed for another year. I intend to work closely with the Vice-Chairman to ensure that we support Surrey's Young Mayor and Cabinet and enable young people's voices to be heard louder than ever.
I'm sure you will agree that we have plenty to focus our efforts on - and as Surrey Stands Together, we will come out the other side of this pandemic stronger than ever before.
