David Graves (your Alderman) commented on Sue Pearson's blog post CITY OF LONDON CORPORATION FAILS ITS RESIDENTS
"Paul, I'm surprised that referring to an audience caused you such upset. By "audience" I mean those who follow this site and the conversations/discussions which happen here. I expect that most of these are residents, but not…"

David Graves (your Alderman) commented on Sue Pearson's blog post CITY OF LONDON CORPORATION FAILS ITS RESIDENTS
"However tempting it might be to simply say yes to a lengthy post which features a critique of a range of responses from the City Corporation's Chair of Policy & Resources (some would say the equivalent of the Leader of the Council) that…"

David Graves (your Alderman) replied to Iain Meek's discussion Sports Centre re-opening
"Good news - the Golden Lane Leisure Centre is due to re-open on 26 October. Unfortunately, the pool will not re-open then, but the rest of the facility, including the tennis courts, should be available. "

David Graves (your Alderman) replied to Ruben Mendes's discussion Hatfield House Power Loss
"Once power has been restored, I hope as soon as possible, I would like to know how the water leak came about. I assume most electrical intake cupboards are in "basement" areas which means leaks carry a risk of power cuts to residents.…"

David Graves (your Alderman) commented on Graeme Harrower's blog post ALDERMAN POSTPONES DATE FOR HIS RE-ELECTION
"Dear Ian, Just to update you regarding the Leisure Centre, the re-opening is being actively discussed between Fusion and the City of London at the moment - obviously a key consideration is how to re-open in a safe manner. Unfortunately I cannot…"

David Graves (your Alderman) commented on Graeme Harrower's blog post ALDERMAN POSTPONES DATE FOR HIS RE-ELECTION
"Dear Ian, The issue, as discussed below, is about timing, not about whether the nation is still a democracy when local elections have been postponed, as they have been nationwide. I think it would look very odd to the outside world for the City of…"

David Graves (your Alderman) commented on Graeme Harrower's blog post ALDERMAN POSTPONES DATE FOR HIS RE-ELECTION

David Graves (your Alderman) commented on Graeme Harrower's blog post ALDERMAN POSTPONES DATE FOR HIS RE-ELECTION

David Graves (your Alderman) commented on Graeme Harrower's blog post ALDERMAN POSTPONES DATE FOR HIS RE-ELECTION

"My husband went there at 7 but mainly empty shelves. I think their stock comes in during the afternoon and is then put out and gets cleared out by the time they close. This mass buying must be stopped"
