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.
“Really important research here. Brick Lane matters. And the contribution of the Bangladeshi community to this road, which is in some ways the cultural heart of our borough, is vital.”
Cllr Dan Tomlinson, Bromley North, Cabinet Member for Environment and Public Realm (job share) – Lead on Public Realm, Twitter, 30th July
It’s interesting to read Cllr Tomlinson’s unusual – probably unique – take on the relationship between Brick Lane and the Bangladeshi community. He also has a minority view on Tower Rewards. Why not suggest that he supports the Council workers and signs the open letter? Or offer him an alternative sandwich board.
