Here’s yet another ‘CHINO’ who Mayor Denise Le Gal, fondly refers to as
‘Councillors Here in Name Only.’
They just keep on coming, don’t they? Councillors who for the past four years have only rocked up on a few occasions. But, have managed to bank their allowances, free car-parking badge and other council perks!
Let’s hope the new occupant of Farnham’s Moor Park seat left by the ‘very retiring’ Cllr Hill, who failed miserably to represent residents, makes a better job of things?
A Touch of Frost is on the run from her Wrecclesham & Rowledge seat – so she can continue to spew forth what her name suggests, – ‘A Touch of Frost,’ alongside her Tory running-mate Rashida Nasir. But, having thrown their hats into the ring, this undynamic duo might find they have a fight on their hands, after Cllr Hill’s dismal attendance record.
Farnham Residents’ candidates are Andy MacLeod, who after a great showing took the Surrey County Council Farnham Central seat received a nasty case of Frostbite from his opponent pictured. He is joined by former Waverley employee and Union Rep Michaela Martin. Oh Lordy, lordy – let’s hope Frost and Martin don’t end up going head to head at Waverley Towers!?
Giving up the seat for Farnham’s Upper Hale Ward was a wrench for ‘Your Waverley’s council leader Julia Potts. She leaves the ward she has represented at ‘Your Waverley’ for the past eight years with – “a heavy heart.”
Nothing to do with being fearful that she needed a much safer seat in True, blue Tory Tilford – no – of course not – and the Waverley Web’s true identity is Mary Poppins! And Protect Our Waverley wants to stop development in the borough, and not just at Dunsfold Park!
She also says in the Herald’s new tabloid edition that she is giving up her Farnham Town Council seat so that she can concentrate on with being Leader of Waverley Borough Council? The typical arrogance we have come to expect. A little more humility would not come amiss Potty One.
If you were so confident of your popularity then why not stay loyal to the residents of Upper Hale?
Let’s hope you get the soft landing you are so confident of receiving from the residents of your new hunting ground?
Julia Potts getting ready to land in her newly acquired ward. Others too are being shuffled and set down like early Spring cuckoos in other ward’s nests.The bid to keep control of ‘Your Waverley’ is on.
Here at the Waverley Web, we all thought we were beginning to show signs of memory loss – until we glanced back at the last FULL COUNCIL of ‘Your True Blue Waverley.’
Did we, or did we not, hear Mayor Farnham’s GAL – say…
‘So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, GOOOODBYEEEE?
Yes, we most certainly did! – It appears that along with other Tories being shuffled around the borough like a pack of cards the second line of the song is more fitting?
Because Godalming’s former Binscombe Liz is not retiring after all but about to…
Over to Farnham Castle’s two-seat Ward to partner Sarah Anson to prevent the Tory stronghold from falling into the hands of Farnham Residents’ David Beaman and George Hesse. Paul Telford is also standing for the Liberal Democrats.
Or, having been thanked for her services to Godalming on her forthcoming retirement and service to the borough Farnham residents will tell her she will finally have an opportunity on May 2nd To finally say…
