The leader of Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, cllr Andrew Morgan, has been elected as the new leader of the Welsh Local Government Association (WLGA).

The appointment comes after former leader, Baroness Debbie Wilcox, was given a peerage in Theresa May’s Resignation Honours List for her ‘outstanding contribution’ to local government.

Cllr Morgan said: ‘Debbie has been a strong advocate for local government during her leadership of the WLGA and, as WLGA leader, I intend to continue to champion local government’s cause, ensure its collective voice is heard by Government and further raise the profile of the vital work that councils and councillors undertake on behalf of their communities.'

Baroness Wilcox added: ‘Promoting equality and diversity was one of my priorities as the first woman leader of the WLGA. I am therefore proud that I have worked with some of the most diverse and modern leaders who have not only championed equality and diversity but have personified it.’
