We were elected with the promise to stand up for businesses, City workers and residents in the Ward of Cheap and ensure the City Corporation fights for the best Brexit deal possible.

But whatever the outcome of the negotiations for me three priorities are clear: ensuring the City remains an attractive place for businesses to locate – which includes transport investment; open spaces; investment in culture and vibrant communities (shops and restaurants) and an immigration policy which welcomes a global workforce.

If anything the role of the City Corporation to promote London and the Lord Mayor as ambassador for the Square Mile is more important than ever.
