To act on your behalf Common Councillors must have the opportunity to speak and vote on the issues that affect your homes, environment and neighbourhoods.
The City of London Corporation currently policy currently limits those opportunities despite a petition with over 3000 signatures asking for change.
I will strong advocate for change to be in a position to represent you on all issues which affects residents and workers in Aldersgate.
"...the Court of Common Council was presented with 1,122 signatures from residents who have “no confidence” in the authority’s current standards policy and practice.
"The petition was fuelled by anger sparked when Councillor Sue Pearson, a Golden Lane resident, was referred by the Corporation to the police for speaking out on attempts to delegate the planning decision for the City of London Primary Academy Islington scheme to Islington Council. The law requires a councillor with a financial interest in a matter not to speak and vote on that matter without being granted permission to do so, known as a dispensation."
