Wembley Connects Forum gets a new chair

Cllr Krupa Sheth
Cllr Mitchell Murray
Cllr Krupa Sheth, (Labour Wembley Central) will take over chairing the Wembley Connects forum from Cllr Wilhelmena Mitchell Murray in the next round.

Sheth, who lives in St Michael's Aveneue, won the Wembley Central by-election in late December 2011 at the age of 20. She will be quite a contrast to the 'tough cookie' Mitchell Murray who controversially stopped discussion of Veolia's human rights record in occupied Palestine at the last Wembley Connects on the grounds that a section of the audience found the topic 'offensive'.

Mitchell Murray has a large personality which, accompanied by a sometimes sarcastic sense of humour, was given free reign at the forum. Krupa Sheth's personality and sense of humour has been largely hidden from public view.

Cllr Sheth was involved in her own spot of controversy when a member of the public accused her of texting throughout a vital Planning Committee discussing the Willesden Green Library redevelopment. She defended herself by saying she was looking up information about the issues under discussion.

Cllr Mitchell Murray has taken over the  chair of the Children and Young  People Overview and Scrutiny Committee from Cllr Roxanne Mashari.

This isn't the first time Krupa Sheth has been seen 'texting' during a Council meeting. The young lady clearly feels that she can spend more time concentrating on her phone than on the meeting at large. As for looking up information, haven't our wonderful councillors been given iPads for that? The excuse seems implausible at best!

Sheth, be open and frank. People make mistakes, don't make cover stories!!!
