“For me, one of my drives is to give the best value for the residents and be there for them to provide any support they may need.

“We do have vulnerable residents in the Parish and I am not unique on the council in seeing their wellbeing as a core value. We would like to be there to help signpost to those residents services that are available to them.

“I’m very much for working as a team. The chairman may be the leader, but one person cannot make everything happen. I’m a great believer in the power of teamwork.

“We have a good team of hard-working councillors who all have got the best interests of Staining residents at heart.

“I’m very much looking forward to the civic year ahead and I couldn’t have done it without the love and support of my family and the support of my fellow councillors.”

Councillor Eamonn Heaney was elected as vice chairman.
