The ousted leader of Bristol City Council has said she hopes to continue playing a leading role in the authority.
Councillor Janke continues as leader of the council until 15 May
Barbara Janke was sacked as leader of the Liberal Democrats last weekend, after some election disappointments.
She said the city had made steady progress in the past four years.
"There is still much to be done but I believe there is now a firm foundation on which the new leadership and administration can build," she said.
Among the achievements, she said, were the upgrading of many schools to provide state-of-the art learning environments for Bristol's children.
She added that several new libraries and leisure facilities had replaced old and outdated ones, and work was under way on the redevelopment of Colston Hall and the creation of a new Museum of Bristol.
"I hope to continue to play a leading role within the council as a whole and to offer the experience and knowledge I have gained... to assist and support my fellow councillors," she said.
Councillor Janke continues technically as leader of the council until 15 May when a successor and new Cabinet will be appointed.
