Cllr Wilhelmina Mitchell Murray has resigned as the lead member for children and young people.

The Wembley Central councillor took on the role last May following a cabinet reshuffle by Cllr Muhammed Butt, the leader of the council.

Cllr Mili Patel, who represents the Alperton ward and is married to Kensal Green councillor Matt Kelcher, will take on the role.

Cllr Butt, said: “Cllr Mitchell Murray has informed me that, for personal reasons, she feels it is necessary to step back from her cabinet role.

“I have reluctantly accepted Wilhelmina’s resignation and, on behalf of the Labour Group, would like to thank her for her service and for her selflessness in considering whether or not she was still able to meet the demands of the role.

“I have asked Cllr Mili Patel to take on the statutory cabinet member for children and young people position, and know that she’ll make a great addition to cabinet.”

Cllr Mitchell Murray’s resignation comes a month after Cllr Roxanne Mashari stood down as lead member for employment and skills.

In October, Cllr Michael Pavey resigned as the lead member for stronger communities just five months into his role due to a ‘different vision’ with Cllr Butt.
