Lib Dem Spokesperson for Bolsover, Ross Shipman’s Statement on Cllr Barry Lewis after 12 months in office:
Given his record over the past 12 months, and his inability take criticism, it’s time Conservative leader of Derbyshire County Council, Barry Lewis, followed Amber Rudd’s lead by accepting that he is unable to deliver for the people of Derbyshire.
Over the past 12 months, Cllr Lewis has overseen the cutting of:
- Library services
- Bus services
- Children’s services
- Adult services
- School crossing patrols
- School budgets
It’s an insult to Derbyshire residents that Cllr Lewis and the Conservative Group think we should be grateful for botched up pot hole repairs while they dismantle services across the county.
He should therefore take full responsibility for his incompetence and resign.
