Thought for today 20.07.20

TOWER HAMLETS COUNCILLORS: what are they like? The hot topic in the Borough is the decision of Executive Mayor John Biggs to impose new contracts (“Tower Rewards”) on the Council workforce.  Do Labour Councillors back him or not? Ten councillors have signed an open letter asking him to think again.  Thirty-one have not.  It’s time we got to know our councillors a bit better, so this month we’ll be sharing some quotes from Labour’s public representatives.

“It’s been a tremendous turnout today with so many happy faces raising awareness and funds for such fantastic causes. Thank you to the organisers on such a well marshalled event and well done to everybody young and old.”
Cllr Faroque Ahmed, Whitechapel ward, speaking to LB24TV about the Muslim Charity Run, September 2019

Cllr Ahmed has not been allocated any remunerated positions by the Mayor – but nor has he signed the councillors’ open letter on Tower Rewards.  If you would like to suggest that he does so, contact him on:
