Stepping down from Cabinet
12 May 2023
Councillor McNicholas, who represents the Ynyscedwyn Ward and has been a member of the cabinet since May 2022, said she was stepping down for health reasons.
She is a member of the Welsh Labour Party and shares the Cabinet portfolio responsibility with Cllr Sandra Davies, who will assume full Cabinet responsibilities on a full-time basis.
"Serving on the Cabinet has been an honour and I strongly believe that as a Cabinet we have already made a positive impact on the lives of residents and businesses in Powys," said Cllr McNicholas.
"I have valued my time on the Cabinet, and I wish my cabinet colleagues well for the future. I will continue as the County Councillor representing Ynyscedwyn Ward."
The Leader, Councillor James Gibson-Watt thanked Councillor McNicholas for her hard work and contributions to the cabinet during the first 12-months of the new Cabinet's life.
"During her time on the Cabinet Susan has shown integrity, loyalty and passion for her role and I wish her well in the future," he said.
