Shortlist to achievement awaqrd - well done to Ruth O’Keeffe

I would like to give my congratulations to Cllr Ruth O’ Keefe for making it onto the shortlist for the LGIU achievement awards.

In all my years that I have known Ruth, she has always worked passionately and tirelessly for the people of Lewes.

Ruth always has time to speak to anyone who stops her in the street, even though she is always rushing off to another meeting.

In County Hall, Ruth always speaks to you in a polite and respectful manner.

When Ruth stands up to speak, she speaks in a clear manner and gives the facts.

I for one listen to Ruth and agree with her points. Despite being critisised by the MP Norman Baker, I think that all councillors can take a few lessons from her. Well done Ruth.

Cllr Peter Charlton
