Kavanagh writes to Lewisham mayoral candidates - update

Open letter from Millwall chief executive

1 May 2018

Millwall Football Club's Chief Executive, Steve Kavanagh, has written to all of Lewisham's mayoral candidates to ask them certain questions about their views, policies and potential commitments regarding Millwall Football Club and the New Bermondsey urban regeneration site.

In the case of Damien Egan, Lewisham Labour's candidate, MFC has referred to the specific policies outlined in Labour's manifesto. The other candidates have been asked questions on these same topics. 

These issues have a direct bearing on the future of MFC and the Millwall Community Trust (MCT) in the borough and therefore we want to ensure that Millwall's fans and members of the community are made aware of the implications for us of a new mayor in Lewisham.


Update - Tuesday 1st May 2018

Following on from all of the below, which is detailed chronologically, Kavanagh has twice since written to Egan via email without reply. His emails can be viewed here and here.
