Rob White, a Green Party councillor in Reading has been shortlisted for a national award.
Rob, who represents the Park ward, has been shortlisted as "New Councillor of the Year" in the Councillor Achievement Awards run by the Local Government Information Unit.
Cllr White said today:
"This was totally unexpected. I have just been working away with residents and the council on improving the local area, as I was doing before getting elected.
"Apart from being surprised I am both delighted and honoured to have made the shortlist."
Cllr White said that before the election his priorities were more decent affordable housing, better public transport walking and cycling facilities and tackling crime and antisocial behavior.
Since then, Rob says, he has been "standing up for public services and fighting cuts to care services."
The awards ceremony is being held in Westminster on Tuesday, 8th February.
