Labour can announce that long serving Firth Park Councillor Alan Law is stepping down due to ill health.
Alan was first elected to the council in 1991 and has a record of serving Sheffield and the Firth Park Ward for a number of decades. In his time on the council he has served as a senior member and former Chair of the Planning Committee and has a long standing record working with the local community.
He is widely regarded and well thought of within the council and his local community of Firth Park.
Alan Law, said:
“It has been a great honour and privilege to serve as a councillor for Firth Park for many years and I am really proud of the work we have done in the community. I would like to thank everyone who I have had the privilege of working with and particularly the local community in Firth Park Ward.
“I still care passionately about serving the community and Sheffield, however, now is the right time for Firth Park to elect a new councillor and I wish whoever is luckily enough to be elected every success for the future, serving what is a brilliant community.”
Councillor Terry Fox, Leader of Sheffield City Council, said:
“I would like to thank Alan on behalf of the Labour Group and the council as a whole for the contribution that Alan has made to the city and in particular his community of Firth Park over the years.
“Alan is widely respected by everyone and we are all grateful for the service and wish him all the best for the future.”
