Statement from Croydon Labour on Mayor Perry’s Section 114 Notice
It is a sad day for Croydon that the council appears to be going backwards. During a cost-of-living crisis, it is imperative that political leaders put their differences aside. Labour is under new leadership and is committed to working cross-party to clean up this mess.
We accept that the previous administration made mistakes that contributed to our town’s financial challenges. However, the Conservative Government’s own improvement panel acknowledged Labour’s “creditable” progress in addressing the council’s financial problems since they came to light.
This is a shared problem which requires a shared solution where both parties must work together in the interests of our residents. Unfortunately, the Mayor seems more interested in scoring political points rather than working together to fix our town.
