It’s reported in the Willesden and Brent Times that Liberal Democrat Councillor for Willesden Green Ward Gavin Sneddon has moved out of Brent.
Personally, I do not see an issue with his move so much, as he has to be fair, been attending meetings, area forums etc in Brent. He is reported to be living in Barnet, which isn’t actually far away from Brent.
On the other hand, we have Lib Dem Cllr David Clues. He has been living in Brighton since 8th December 2011. He has not been responding to emails, has no surgery in the ward, does not attend ward meetings such as Ward Panel with the local Police team, does not attend ward priority setting meetings, Ward working meetings where we have been fleshing out ideas as to what we want in Dudden Hill.
The question of attendance to Council meetings of Brent Liberal Democrat Councillors has also attracted widespread criticism in the past. Indeed recently, they’ve even developed a liberal approach to meetings and gone AWOL in the middle of meetings.
Another Brent Liberal Democrat Councillor is also rumoured to have moved out of Brent. If proven true, it will mean that nearly 20% of the Brent Liberal Democrat Group do not live in Brent.
