Alan ConnettCouncillor Alan Connett has been announced as the Leader of Devon County Council's Lib Dem Group, and Leader of the Opposition on Devon County Council for the next Council term.

Alan has been on Devon County Council, representing Exminster and Haldon, since 2008. Julian Brazil, councillor for Kingsbridge, has been elected as Deputy Leader of Devon County Council's Lib Dem Group.

Speaking after his selection, Alan said:

"This is an exciting time to be leader of the Lib Dem Group in Devon. Here in Devon we had an encouraging set of results, with two Council seats gained.

"The job for the Lib Dems in Devon is to stand up for local people. We have a Conservative run council that feels it knows better than local communities. We will be challenging them to get the best for the residents of Devon."

"The Liberal Democrats passionately believe that Devon County Council has to work to make sure no one is left behind. Lib Dem councillors will work hard to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to reach their potential and contribute to keeping Devon a wonderful place to live and work."
