A second councillor in Brent has resigned from the cabinet in two months.
Cllr Roxanne Mashari has stepped down from her role as the lead member for regeneration, growth, employment and skills today.
The councillor for the Welsh Harp ward had previously held the cabinet position of lead member of environment and neighbourhood.
Cllr Mashari, who became a councillor in 2010, said: “I am proud of what we have achieved in the time that I have served on the cabinet.
“I’m confident that my successor will build on the achievements of recent years and I wish the cabinet well in their ongoing work.”
Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, added: “I would like to thank Roxanne for her excellent service in cabinet.
“She has been a strong advocate for fairness and equality in Brent, and has led on a number of landmark policies on the council.
“I am confident that Roxanne will continue to do an excellent job representing the residents of Welsh Harp and supporting the work of Brent Council in the future.”
In October Cllr Michael Pavey resigned from the cabinet citing ‘differences’ with Cllr Butt.
His position as the lead member for stronger communities has been taken over by Tom Miller.
