Dear Mayor and Councillors colleagues
I will be stepping down from my position as Statutory Deputy Mayor and Cabinet Lead for Housing Services. I wish to play an active role in the 2021 Newham Mayoral referendum campaign in support of a committee model.
After working as a Councillor for over 10 years under two Mayors I have come to the conclusion that this is the right model for Newham. I therefore do not think it is appropriate for me to remain in the Cabinet.
I will, of course, fully support whoever is appointed as Cabinet Lead for Housing Services.
Councillor I West Ham Ward
Deputy Mayor I Cabinet Member for Housing Services I
London Borough of Newham
