He is currently Deputy Leader of the Council, Deputy Leader of the Labour Group, Executive Councillor for Community Services and a member of the Appointments and Appeals Panel. His challengers in 2015 are Conservative Brian Evans and Green Party Peter Duncan Allen. UKIP do not have a candidate in Gamesley.
