When I was campaigning to be elected as a City Councillor, I promised that if elected, I’d provide the level of reporting back that I’d always wanted to see from my councillors. I hope that you’ve been happy with what I’ve done, with the weekly blog and these video reports. This second annual chat from my kitchen table discusses the learning curve of being a councillor in this city, and what it’s revealed to me. Do have a watch, and do let me know what you think.
Addendum, 5pm Sunday: with the benefit of hindsight, I think I should have allowed myself a little more time to unwind from a busy and (yes, you guessed it) frustrating week before I recorded that video! It was neither as structured or as concise as I would have liked it to be. But I hope the most important point nevertheless comes across loud and clear: the status quo in Cambridge is not working, and anyone who says it is, is either misleading themselves or you.
Here are the links I mentioned in the video:
- My presentation on The hidden cost of households experiencing ‘double disadvantage’ in Queen Edith’s
- Edward Leigh’s petition asking to create a cross-party Commission on the future governance of England
