Among the appointments is Ian Clement who takes up the position of Deputy Mayor with responsibility for Government relations.

Mr Clement a Bexley Councillor for ten years said,
” I am greatly honoured Boris Johnson has asked me to do this is important job and play my part in changing London for the better. I am of course sad to be leaving Bexley Council after ten very happy years, but I have every confidence that Bexley Conservatives will continue to stand up for all the people of the borough”.
Cllr Teresa O Neill has been appointed as Acting Leader until the Council elects its new leader on 14th May. Commenting on Mr Clement’s appointment she remarked,
“ Ian Clement worked very hard for Bexley & provided the strong & dynamic
leadership that led to the Conservatives winning control of Bexley Council
in 2006. Since then the team have ensured that Council Tax was kept low
whilst local services were improved.
Bexley residents sent a clear message that they wanted a change at City Hall
by electing Boris Johnson as Mayor & we know that Ian will take his
knowledge of Bexley with him when helping Boris to drive that change for the benifit of everyone living in Bexley”
