New commissioner appointed
Following an open public appointments process HM The King has appointed Liz Treacy as a Commissioner.
Liz has spent most of her career as a solicitor in several Greater Manchester authorities. Her focus in those roles was public law, adult social care, employment and education law. In an innovative move she became responsible for the legal and democratic services across Salford City Council, Manchester City Council and the Greater Manchester Combines Authority. Liz has also been a deputy returning officer for Greater Manchester Mayoral and Manchester City Council elections.
Liz Treacy says "I am very pleased and honoured to be appointed as a Commissioner to the LGBCE. I believe that effective, efficient and accountable local government is essential to a healthy democracy. I hope that my experience as a lawyer and local government officer will bring some value to the work of the Commission."
