For those of you who don’t follow us on twitter you may not have seen the Local Government Chronicle’s ’50 most influential voices in Local Government’ supplement which was published yesterday evening.
The supplement does exactly what it says on the tin and amongst other Brucie bonuses also includes a section outlining 8 ‘organisations with influence’.
We are very gratified to say that our local government blog, written by ordinary officers, is one of them. (Page 19 of the supplement if you want to check it out)
We’re also incredibly proud to be on a list with groups like the New Local Government Network, Local Government Information Unit, Centre for Cities and the Young Foundation. To even be considered alongside these organisations is, to put it simply, awesome!
So do check out the LGC 50; it’s a really good read and highlights some of the great work going on in Local Government. Meanwhile our heartfelt thanks go out to the LGC, the judging panel, those people who anonymously nominated us and all of you who read this blog.
It’s all just a little overwhelming.
