Job descriptions for my team
Job descriptions have been published for my role, the role of Deputy City Mayor, and the roles of Assistant Mayor and which can be found at the bottom of this page. These will hopefully help the public to understand what to expect of their locally elected politicians, and the standards by which they can be held to account and judged.
You can also download the executive scheme of delegation, which details the portfolios for me and my executive team.
A new style of executive meetings
I want my executive team meetings to be open to all so you can question my team on those things that matter to you.
Our meetings will also highlight what areas of work we're looking at so you can get involved before any final decisions are made.
You can watch webcasts of past cabinet meetings and view archived council meetings on our webcasting website which is linked at the top of this page.
