City of Lincoln council elects new leader

Cllr Naomi Tweddle has been formally appointed as the new Leader of City of Lincoln Council at its Annual General Meeting.

She has been Labour councillor for Minster ward in the city since 2016, and the Executive Member for Inclusive Economic Growth for the past year. Prior to this, she was Chair of the council’s Planning Committee.

Her appointment to the position follows Cllr Ric Metcalfe’s decision to step down after 42 years serving as a city councillor, during which he was council leader for a total of 21 years.

Cllr Tweddle was born and raised in Lincoln, growing up on the Ermine estate, and still lives in the city with her young family. She attended St Peter and St Pauls school prior to going to the University of Leicester and currently works as Head of the Case Unit for the UNISON in the East Midlands.

Also at the AGM, Cllr Donald Nannestad was appointed to remain in his role as the council’s Deputy Leader, working alongside Cllr Tweddle to deliver the council’s priorities under its Vision 2025, and Cllr Joshua Wells stepped up into the vacant role of Executive Member for Inclusive Economic Growth.
