  • Lack of Meaningful Engagement: James Murray’s tenure has been characterized by a superficial approach to engaging with the Muslim community.

  • Opposition to Gaza Ceasefire: Many Muslim residents express deep disappointment with Murray’s public stance against a ceasefire in Gaza during times of conflict. His position contradicts the values of peace and humanitarianism cherished by the local Muslim population, further eroding trust in his ability to advocate for their interests effectively.
