Temple and Farringdon Together’s Edward Lord and Wendy Mead have come out as two of the City of London’s hardest working councillors in attendance statistics released this week.
Edward, who until last May was Chairman of the City’s Standards Committee and is now Deputy Chairman of the Establishment Committee, and Wendy who chairs the Port Health & Environmental Services Committee and Health Scrutiny Committee both have over 90% attendance records at the various meetings they attend as City councillors.
Wendy attended 72 out of 79 committee meetings in the last twelve months, and Edward attended 95 out of 106 meetings. And that is on top of all the work they do in the Ward of Farringdon Without supporting constituents.
Both Edward and Wendy have been recognised nationally for their public service by appointment as an OBE in the Queen’s Honours’ Lists in 2011 and 2015.
Wendy Mead was Sheriff of the City of London in 2011-2012 and will be Chief Commoner in 2017-2018 if re-elected as a councillor on 23 March.
