|A BRIDGE BUILDER|
The Dame has little knowledge of Tim: what little she has gleaned comes from residents in his neck of the woods.
Without exception, Tim is regarded as a hyperactive representative....no letter, email or telephone call goes unanswered.
Tim has much stored up good will. When Daniel Moylan was set upon destroying Sloane Square with his bloody silly scheme Tim, along with Victoria Borwick, stood up to be counted.
The story goes that he was punished for this act of righteous rebellion by being denied the Mayoralty ....such is the petty vindictiveness of Pooter Cockell.
Anyway, back to TC.
The Dame is told that Coleridge is the 'right stuff.' He knows how to behave; is courteous to all and deeply popular with residents. More importantly, officers say they can work with him.
A good all rounder and someone who can build bridges between residents and a deeply flawed council.
His defect? He needs to push himself forward with more vigour and aggression.
