Cllr John Ward, Leader of Babergh District Council, said: “I’m very happy to welcome Cllr Simon Barrett into our Cabinet, and both Simon and Cllrs Melanie Barrett and Michael Holt back to our group. The experience and knowledge of our district that they possesses is a great asset for Babergh and Simon, with decades of experience as a businessman, a councillor and a portfolio holder can make a real difference in the Cabinet. It’s no secret that we have had disagreements in the past, but our first duty is to our residents and we would be failing them if we didn’t take advantage of the skills and experience Simon, Melanie and Michael so willingly bring to public service. I know that we and our entire group are looking forward to working together for the benefit of Babergh.”
