Do we need a Cabinet Member for Strategy and Communication?

Customer Services includes both Housing and Environment, shouldn't we have two people instead?

Cabinet member for health?

Well i'm looking forward to some good stuff from this group. I want Lewisham to a leading council not a middling one.

What the hell is 'cabinet minister for the third sector' ??? What's the first or second ones?

I think the first and second are the public and private sector (not sure of the precedence!) and the third is the not-for-profit sector.

Does a "Cabinet Member for Strategy and Communications" sound a taxfunded party propoganda department?

Doesn't the Mayor already have his own office with press officers for himself and for the council?

Having recently read a communication from Damien where he claimed he 'lead' an action when I thought it was a community lead action...shows what we can expect?

I fear a return to the dark era of humble councillor 'Gavin Moore' and his darstadly ways.

An era when letters to newspapers from concerned residents were responded to with full page (taxpayer funded) ads run for two weeks...featuring Mr. Moore's mug and words of wisdom.

Blimey, while trawling have found yet another former councillor who was part of the silent majority (2002-2006) has been returned as a councillor in another part of the borough.

Reading the pre-election literture, the Labour party campaigned locally by saying it was a two horse race with......the Tories????

Did those candidates really believe that the Tory vote in Lewisham was their main threat or were those candiates cynically duping voters?

If the elected councillors can be so fundementally wrong in an area that is their specialist subject ie politics, one wonders what they are going base their opinions regarding schools and housing.

Looks like more made up jobs for the boy's (or girl's).

The boy's or girl's what?

But, credit to Joan Millbank, she has devoted all her spare time to the Third Sector - the Ackroyd Centre and as a governor of Crossways among other things - for years. Glad her experience is being valued and recognised.

Susan Wise back again: the councillor who led us into the PFI fiasco and then tries to wash her hands of it.

Hmm, if I was a Mayor with a comfortable majority and I wanted to stick two fingers up at all those who oppose my regen' plans for Lewisham Town Centre, who would I appoint as Deputy Mayor? Ah, yes, of course . . .

Regarding the post about Damien Egan(Labour Lewisham Central) claiming to have led an action(he helped, there's a difference)he also stood as the prospective Labour MP for Beckenham. What would have happened if he had won both? Is it possible to be a councillor in one ward and an MP in another?

Tamsin said...

Who votes at the special meeting?

Presumably the other ward councillors...

Anonymous said...

Yep probably vote each other in.

Jim Connell said...

Who do you think votes at the Council AGM, Tamsin?
The members of the council, of course.
You've had your vote in the elections, so now it's over to the elected councillors.
And none of this ConLib coalition nonsense here.
Next chance for you to vote is Mayor for London in 2012: feeling a touch nervous, Boris?

Lewisham's just come out of a LabCon coalition by the way. With the majority Lab got, there's no need for one anymore.
