Looking forward to the next chapter

After nine months of campaigning, attending many events and meeting hundreds of liverymen, I was both humbled and delighted to be elected as Sheriff for the ensuing year at a packed Common Hall on a very warm and sunny 24th June. It was a truly wonderful day in every respect and I am looking forward to taking office with my fellow Sheriff, Alderman Alastair King, at the end of September.

With freedom comes responsibility

Freedom is a poignant topic at the moment. We are seeing its fragility played out before our eyes in Ukraine. With that conflict we can also see the contradictions that go with preserving peace and democracy - notably, that to have them we must be willing to defend them.

The individual power to effect positive change

Positive change in 2022. There’s tangible evidence to give us cautious optimism, and perhaps most importantly in The City, key upcoming events that give us a direct influence over the direction of that change as well.

All change in the City of London!

Ordinarily, the 25 Wards in The City elect an Alderman every six years. Usually, those elections are not all held at the same time - there’s balance. In addition, every four years, 100 Common Councillors are elected with varying numbers per Ward between two and five. Covid has meant that the last round of elections did not take place. So next year, several different things collide to create a series of changes simultaneously.
