My new role on Merton Council!

With us been in opposition in Merton (sad but true), I have now been appointed the Labour spokesperson on finance. I am looking forward greatly to my new role (though I would of course preferred if were in power), having done Licensing for the past two years, this will be a new challenge and will involve scrutinising the actions of the Tory minority administration and their financial decisions. Should be filled with opportunities as with the Tories it nearly always involves cutting services to the most venerable people though with this being a 'hung' council, opportunities will no doubt present themselves and as a Labour group we hold them to account every step of the way.
