New faces at the Council

December has seen two new members of staff being recruited and two new councillors being co-opted to Baildon Town Council.

Following an independent staffing review in February this year, a new post of part time Deputy Clerk was created, and with the forthcoming retirement of our Responsible Financial Officer Gary Stevenson, recruitment took place for positions of Deputy Clerk and RFO.

Suzy Krupinski a resident of Baildon for 17 years, has been recruited for the post of Responsible Financial Officer. Suzy who has previously worked at Bingley Grammar School and Bradford Council, has extensive financial experience and will be joining the council on a part time basis.

Lyn Farrell has been the Assistant Clerk at Horsforth Town Council since 2019. She will be joining Baildon Council on a part time basis to complement her hours at Horsforth, where she will continue to be employed. Lyn previously worked in education and will be clerking the Community, Economy and Environment committees, as well as supporting the Clerk.

The Councillor vacancies in the South and South East wards, were co-opted at the Full Council meeting on Monday the 14th of December. Four candidates applied for two vacancies, which resulted in Sue Hewitson being co-opted to the South East ward and Sara Breen being co-opted to the South ward.

We welcome them all to their new roles in the council.
