Anglesey deal to deliver stability - Labour

The leader of Labour's three councillors on Anglesey council, says the deal reached with Independent councillors to run the authority 'will provide stability' for the island. Arwel Roberts said:

Last week's local elections gave us the chance of a new beginning. Every single person elected last week owes it to the people of Ynys Mon to work to secure an administration that will provide stability and deliver for our people. That is exactly what we have done.This partnership will deliver the stability we need, offering a clear majority for the administration. It will also put jobs and investment in the Island at the very heart of all that we do. The priority of Labour councillors will be to secure continued progress on 'Wylfa B'- jobs and training opportunities for our young people.

Now is the time for all parties to put the damaging politicking of the past behind us, and work to deliver stability, and a future that the people of Ynys Mon can be proud of. Regardless of whether they are part of the administration or not, the doors of Labour Cabinet members will be open to all councillors who want to be part of a constructive future for the island.
