FOUR Times Territory politicians have taken their place in a "very strong" team at the head of Hertfordshire County Council.

Robert Gordon, who serves Goffs Oak and Bury Green, was re-elected as council leader following a meeting at county hall in Hertford yesterday.

Closer to home, Hatfield South councillor Stuart Pile retained his role as executive member for Highways and Transport, while Richard Smith (Welwyn) switched portfolios from community safety and culture to adult care and health.

Meanwhile, Knebworth and Codicote councillor Richard Thake is the newly-appointed executive member for education and skills.

Cllr Gordon said: "This is a very strong team.

"We are all deeply committed to protect Hertfordshire and enhance the quality of life of our residents.
