You are invited to this meeting open to all TU members, via Zoom on the subject of the October referendum on an elected Mayor in Croydon. CTUC hopes you will attend and listen to, ask questions and discuss this most important matter. It is seeking to have a local councillor to attend.
The invited speaker is Cllr Tony Belton.
‘I have been a Wandsworth Labour councillor since 1971 and for Latchmere ward since 1982. For 27 of those years, I was the Leader of the Labour Group of councillors and indeed for a very brief period, 3 months, I was Leader of the Council. I have been what was then called the Chairman of the Planning Committee, now the Cabinet member for Planning, before strategic planning and planning applications were split. But for many years my priority has been overall policy decisions made by the Council’.
