What do we want? Councillors who turn up for meetings. Councillors who are – not one of or are amused by the term – ‘CHINOS’ – ‘Councillors Here In Name Only.’
OR Councillors who are admitting they are “paper candidates” who have been dragooned into standing.
When do we want it? NOW.
One of the ‘fun’ things about elections – having to record election videos!
We have several about to be sent around soon – but as the only Liberal Democrat sitting councillor, I have first pick on what I wanted to talk about.
CHANGING THE COUNCILLORS JOB DESCRIPTION.
- That means being there for residents.
listening to residents showing up for meetings and actually making a meaningful contribution on behalf of the people I represent.
It is something I am incredibly honoured to have been doing for almost two years now – and as you will see, something we expect from all our candidates.
And PS. Yes maybe one day I will stop blinking and randomly nodding during videos- but apparently, it’s not today!
