First time ever that Cardiff Conservatives successfully nominate for Lord Mayor and Deputy Lord Mayor of Cardiff in the same municipal year

Cardiff Conservatives were pleased to be able to nominate for both the Lord Mayor and Deputy Lord Mayor for the 2018/19 municipal year.

This is the first time in Cardiff County Council history that the Conservatives have both positions in the same year.

The group put forward Cllr Dianne Rees for the position of The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor of Cardiff, whilst we nominated Cllr Rod McKerlich for the position of Deputy Lord Mayor.

We are delighted to report that both nominations were approved by Council and that Dianne Rees and Rod McKerlich will take office in May.
