Since his election in May 2018 Lewisham council has been in crisis. Ian Thomas was appointed as CEO and started to make changes of improvement. This included the resignations of senior managers predominantly in the CYP directorate. Ironically the very same managers who was imminently leaving Lewisham in shame and disgrace with incompetence to fulfil there roles  have now been offered the interim role as CEO and Executive Director. its worth noting the interim CEO was not successful to be appointed ahead of Ian... yet now the Mayor is supporting his position to mask further racial slurs.

Ian Thomas was making headway to combat the corruption and racism in Lewisham and as result of his commitment to do this it would appear he has fallen foul of the same racism and corruption spearheaded by the Mayor in a clash direction for the council.

The untimely departure of Ian Thomas has ignited the voice of residents and the workforce and enough is enough. Since the public outcry the Mayor has done nothing to reassure us residents and staff, There is no transparency or evidence of management oversight in appropriately managing this fiasco... and the only reaction form the Mayor appears to supporting senior mangers to threaten staff with disciplinary action should they choose to sign the public petition in support of Ian Thomas.

Considering Damian Egan was elected via a public democratic vote. He should have more respect for residents voicing and voting their concerns. As it was us that voted (albeit foolishly) for Damian Egan to be Mayor we strongly recommend Lewisham Council have an urgent referendum to vote Damian Egan OUT.
