Barry Dodson, the Deputy Mayor of Rotherham will, if precedent is followed, succeed John Foden as Mayor next May and become Rotherham’s ‘first citizen’.
We realise, as citizens ourselves, we know practically nothing about Barry Dodson, save for his picture and the following meagre words from him, on RMBC’s website:
Councillor Dodson has been a member of the Council since 2000 and is Chair of the Rotherham South Area Assembly, Vice-Chair of the Planning Board and a member of the Licensing Board, Improving Lives Select Commission and Improving Places Select Commission.
Rothpol would like to invite contributions from readers who have experiences of Barry in action, to enable a rather fuller picture of this man to be developed.
After all, anyone who seeks such an honour, on our behalf, should at least tell us more than this about themselves. Barry might like to start us off?
We are particularly interested in information that would go to the content of his character, the way he conducts himself, both as a Ward Councillor and personally and any appropriate skills he has, to make him suitable for this special duty?
Always a good place to start; Interests Declaration – Barry Dodson.
Ways to contribute:
Leave a comment, Rothpol will pick it up from there.
Please mail Rothpol with your information.
