Councillor Roderick Bluh has announced that he will be stepping down as leader of Swindon Borough Council.
After a record of seven continuous years in the position, he has decided to pursue business opportunities, describing his tenure as the “most fulfilling and enjoyable years of his life” and thanking the people of Swindon for their support.
“I’ve always said Swindon is the friendliest place I’ve ever lived and that’s what makes it so special. We have achieved some brilliant things together, helping to put Swindon on the map for all the right reasons. There is, of course, much more to be done and I have every confidence my successor will continue to help make Swindon an even better place to work and live,” he said.
Cllr Bluh will officially step down at the council meeting on April 11.
