I have a particular skill in scrutinising and have really enjoyed my time so far as the Deputy Chair of Overview and Scrutiny in Barking and Dagenham.
This year we led an in-depth review of Household Waste, Recycling and Street Cleansing which I helped shape. The review made several recommendations that should help streamline services and create a cleaner, greener borough for our residents.
I am a vocal member of the team and take my role as a ‘critical friend’ very seriously, especially as we have no opposition to hold us to account.
Looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into the next big challenge…
