Endings and new beginnings

Today saw the last session of the Court of Common Council before the City of London Corporation elections on 23 March.

The Chief Commoner gave an entertaining farewell to 13 Common Councilmen who are stepping down at these elections.  We all thanked them for their service and contribution.

One of our final acts was to approve the Budget for the coming year.

In Tower Ward the team was not contested and so Roger Chardwick, Marianne Fredericks, James Tumbridge and I will serve for the coming 4 years.

We look forward to welcoming back old colleagues and greeting new ones for the session.  Whilst the Court will evolve the subjects at the top of our agenda will most probably remain the same: ensuring the City is best positioned through the Brexit process; improving our environment, from air quality to green spaces; developing our transport and planning to serve our future needs and making the City a great place to live, work and visit.

Let me know what you would like to see happen in the City in the next 4 years!
