A councillor has been honoured for her long service and dedication to the community in Burntwood.

Cllr Sue Woodward

Cllr Sue Woodward – who is currently leader of Burntwood Town Council – had previously represented the Burntwood North division at Staffordshire County Council from 2013 until May this year.

She was one of four former elected members to be made Honorary Aldermen at a meeting of the county council today (14th October).

Cllr Alan White, leader of the county council, said:

“People sign up to become a county councillor because they want to make a difference to the communities they live in and make Staffordshire a better place for residents to live.

“All four have made a fantastic contribution to the county council and I would like to personally thank them for their individual and collective contributions over a number of years.”

The title of Honorary Alderman is given for long-service to the council and means they are eligible to represent Staffordshire at civic events.

  1. So very well deserved for Sue Woodward for all that she has done over the years, not just for the folk in Burntwood, but also across Lichfield District and indeed the County – and not before time too!

  2. I first met Sue in 1997 soon after LDC sold it’s social housing stock to Homezone Housing Association and I instantly liked her. I haven’t agreed with everything that she has done and said but I think she has worked and continues to work tirelessly for the benefit of all. Congratulations Sue on receiving this award.

  3. We may disagree a bit politically, but she has done so much for the constituency over the years. Well deserved.
