Crawley Cabinet Member for Wellbeing and councillor for Gossops Green & North East Broadfield Chris Mullins has rallied his support for Crawley Council Leader Peter Lamb following the resignation of two Labour Councillors.

In a letter penned to the press he writes:

“I am a long serving member of Crawley Borough Council, with a personal history of service going back to 1983.

I have experienced many changes during these years of service, none though have been as difficult as the crisis we are going through now, with Covid 19.

Peter Lamb is the Leader, that this Town has been very fortunate to have had, in post. He has been a steady hand at the helm, when it was most needed.

We should realise and understand, how fortunate we have been, to have a leader, who has the skills and determination, to keep the people of this Town as safe as possible, at this terrible time.

All of Peter’s decisions have been made, on the grounds of Safety and in consultation with members. It is beyond my understanding that he could be accused of not consulting members, at any stage.

He has done this both with the public through his media contact and with members through our internet meetings, briefings and CBC Facebook. This has been an incredibly difficult time, as no physical meetings can take place, indeed the Town Hall has been closed for 3 Months now.

This has not been an easy time for communication. It should be appreciated that every one of us (members and officers) have been working under very difficult circumstances, This is not a time to criticise.

We all work together in the best interests of Crawley.

Peter’s door has always been open, to all who wish to talk to him, as it will continue to be.”

Yours Sincerely
Labour Cllr Chris Mullins
