Cynical we may be, but isn’t it strange that councillors you seldom see, and hardly ever hear from, suddenly pop up in the most unexpected places for a photo opportunity?
Surrey County Councillor Andrew Povey has pictured himself for his pre-election leaflet here at the Cranleigh Recycling Centre. Really! You couldn’t make it up!
Councillor Povey who has been heavily criticised by Cranleigh parish councillors for NEVER turning up to any of their meetings is psyching himself up to retain the county council seat for Cranleigh and Ewhurst.
A seat the Tories are terrified of losing. Hence in his Action Update leaflet from SCC, he has also pictured himself outside Ewhurst Village School. Why? You ask – because a safety check was carried out there by Surrey highways.
His leaflet is entitled –
‘Andrew Povey Working Hard for Cranleigh and Ewhurst.’
Apparently, he is also claiming credit for the re-surfacing of part of Cranleigh High Street. Only PART mind you – because the county council workers re-surfaced around a skip parked in the road! Leaving an unsurfaced skip-sized patch behind!
Well done Cllr Povey. Did you drive the lorries, or heave the tarmac? If you did why didn’t you ensure the skip was removed?
Apparently, the locals over there in the eastern villages have been having a bit of fun at the expense of the Guildford Conservative Association’s chosen one. All the local comedians have been out in force on FACEBOOK claiming all the miracles they have achieved.
Perhaps Cllr Povey could perform another miracle and get the Road Closed signs removed from the Run Common Road which has been closed for over a year due to wait for it … wait for it ….a Badger Set! Funny that? – Surrey County Council used that same excuse for the delays on the Albury Road works too.
Watch out – there are a lot of badgers about!!!
