Be an effective Newham Councillor training - with Lewisham Mayor, Damien Egan


It was great to see so many Newham Councillors, new and old, turn up for this training led by Lewisham Mayor, Damien Egan, the LGA and Newham officers. 

I have known Damien since before he became Mayor and he is an great exemplar of British civic office. He is in my experience, a genuine, consensual politician who is also thoughtful, courteous and promotes the role of Councillors above himself.  

I still don't believe in an executive mayor model in UK local authorities but he would make a natural leader in any Committee model council.
