He has been a councillor for Brixton Hill Ward since 1998. Steve launched a major public consultation in May 2010 on proposals to establish Lambeth as Britain's first cooperative council, aiming to encourage public sector organisations to work more closely with communities and services users to deliver more responsive services that offer better value for money.
