Councillor Frazer Lake has been appointed as Deputy Mayor of Liverpool.
He takes over the statutory responsibility of formally deputising for Mayor Joanne Anderson.
Mayor Joanne said: “Councillor Lake has been a great asset to my Cabinet & the wider Council in his role as Cabinet Member for Social Care & Health, along with becoming the lead for Contracts & Commissioning and I know he will bring his enthusiasm and experience to his new role.”
Councillor Jane Corbett will retain her title of Deputy Mayor but without statutory responsibilities, and will also continue with her Cabinet portfolio as lead member for Fairness & Tackling Poverty.
Mayor Joanne added: “My continued thanks to Councillor Corbett for her hard work and support over the last 2 years.”
