|ALG Appoints New Director|
22 August 2003
Stephen Lord has been appointed Director of Local Government Finance at the Association of London Government (ALG).
Mr Lord's career spans NALGO, LGIU, the Association of London Authorities, the Association of District Councils and the Local Government Association. He takes up his post with the ALG in September.
Commenting on the challenges facing Mr Lord, ALG Chair Sir Robin Wales said: "A key priority will be to make a strong case for the capital so that it receives a fair amount of funding under the 2004 Spending Review to help tackle the high levels of deprivation and poverty in London, as well as easing the pressure on its public services."
