We hope that the arrival of Sir Ken Knight and Max Caller at Tower Hamlets Council will bring transparency for local residents. As famously said "Sunlight is the best disinfectant".
For too long the reasons behind some of the decisions made by the Mayor and his Cabinet have been shrouded in secrecy. We look forward to seeing changes made to how the Council currently works so that a culture of clarity and accountability can be built and become the norm at Tower Hamlets, after multiple failures by successive administrations.
We’re disappointed that bringing commissioners into the local council has become necessary, and that this cost will be passed onto local residents. We hope that the Mayor and his Cabinet will work with the Commissioners so that they are able to work quickly and reduce the cost to local residents.
We’re optimistic that the Commissioners will make necessary changes to the Council that will benefit local residents and ensure we all get value for money from the decisions made by the Mayor and Council.
