Investing in people

Councils can be depended upon to deliver even better outcomes for residents and the public purse, if they are given financial certainty.

'first' is the LGA's monthly membership magazine for our 18,200 councillors and local authority chief executives in England and Wales

Welcome to new councillors

Congratulations on being elected as a new councillor from myself and everyone at the LGA. I hope you find your time as an elected representative as rewarding as I have, and the LGA a useful resource. I like to think of us as a family and, like all families, we are here to help you as you take on the role of councillor.
