(LG) Association of Labour Councillors
Policy Commission: Economy, Business and Trade Policy Commission
Sue is Leader of Redcar and Cleveland Council. She is a housing and regeneration professional with twenty-five plus experience. Since taking over as Leader one of her biggest challenges has been to respond to the closure of the SSI steelworks. As Chair of the Tees Valley Combined Authority, she took a leading role negotiating the Tees Valley devolution deal and was Labour’s candidate for the Tees Valley in the metro mayor elections. She is the Tees Valley Combined Authority cabinet member with responsibility for business and investment and a member of the LGA City Regions Board.
