Two Sussex council leaders in running for national award

Two council leaders will find out today if they have scooped a top award.

Jason Kitcat, of Brighton and Hove City Council, and Lewes District Council’s James Page are up for the title of Leader of the Year at the 2013 Councillor Achievement Awards.

The Local Government Information Unit (LGIU), which organises the awards, said they had been nominated by the public and shortlisted from a record number of nominees.

A panel of judges will decide the winner on the basis of commitment to the role, a vision for their community, successful leadership, good community relations, accountability and the ability to unite supporters.
