Thanks to all who have been in touch about possibly standing for election next year as a local Councillor. It is hoped that a meeting will take in a couple of months to help new people understand what standing for election would require.
Please keep emailing your interest. firstname.lastname@example.orgMay 14, 2016 at 5:04 pm in reply to: "Make a change today to save Wrexham for the future" become a local Councillor #113349
Monitor you are describing how the Executive and the Scrutiny seems to have moved in the past couple of years- nearly 80% of all items going to the Executive Board have never been through Scrutiny- this is meaning that the non Executive Board Council Members are having to ‘call in’ decisions made by the Executive for consideration.
This is totally undemocratic , time wasting and shows no respect for the electorate who voted for ALL of the Council Members to play their part.
Hope you are up for considering putting your name in the hat for a future Councillor.
School gate litter bugs have been caught today by Rhosymedre School- it is good that the litter brigade have started covering school gates as there is nothing worse than parents hanging around with young children being subject to smoke and then throwing stubs on the floor.
Enforcement Officers keep up the good work.
Just read Andrew Atkinson’s election leaflet- the guy should be ashamed of himself making a statement that ‘Andrew led the successful campaign to save Wrexham Maelor maternity services’.
Participation at an event does not make you the lead and the congratulations should go to those that brought the issue to the attention of the Public and fought BCU. Where was Andrew at the Public meeting held by the Health Board at the Memorial Hall?
Andrew were is the evidence that YOU led the campaign?April 4, 2016 at 9:48 pm in reply to: Wrexham Council building on Greenbelt and School Fields #111095
14 months till Local Government election — lets see if we have any potential politicians come out of the woodwork to lead Wrexham to 2020- there are surly enough interested scribes from these threads alone to take a number of the seats..
The Leader should be referred to Trading Standards for misrepresentation — how they can call it Wrexham when most days there is nearly 50% that is Chester, Mild Deeside news.April 3, 2016 at 4:34 pm in reply to: Wrexham Council building on Greenbelt and School Fields #111035
A key element of the issue of needing moire houses is that we are a rapidly ageing population and the number of over 70’s in 10 years time will mean that we need a major influx of ‘workers’ just to keep the existing services and businesses operating at the current level. Very limited building however for smaller homes suitable for retirees.March 26, 2016 at 12:45 am in reply to: Democracy has died bring forward a Save Wrexham party for next years election #109769
The webcast is available for everyone to decide who was rude — the Leader stopped on at least two occasions not for the public gallery but of comments by Councillors that he heard.
The comments about gutter politics also reflects the mood of the meeting amongst Council Members.
The public gallery were expecting a debate and it was closed down – the Deputy Mayor did not allow responses and Lead Members not answering questions — the public had every right to moan about the proceedingsMarch 25, 2016 at 7:54 pm in reply to: Democracy has died bring forward a Save Wrexham party for next years election #109738
One of the possible ways to remove the Executive Board prior to the 2017 Local Government election would be to give evidence to the new Government about errors and possible maladministration by the current Board.
There certainly is enough for any Government to consider – they have done it before so a president has been set.
The reasons could include-
Personality politics which shows there is little respect between some Councillor and their behaviours in public arenas is bring the Office of Councillor into Disrepute.
Mismanagement of the closure of Plas Madoc Leisure Centre
Mismanagement over the Groves site
Mismanagement of the Town Centre
Mismanagement of schools and yet another secondary in Special Measures
Mismanagement of budget management = needing to pay £4.5 million to PWC consults to do the work of Senior Managers
Mismanagement of the Arts Hub and Markets
Mismanagement of budgets with cuts of £15 m when only £6 mi required die to better settlement
Mismanagement of handling of FOIs with large number being delayed
Bring on the Save Wrexham campaign group there is plenty here for you to get your teeth into..March 24, 2016 at 4:36 pm in reply to: Unlucky for some- Deputy Mayors comment at Council Meeting #109672
The Deputy Mayor introduced item 12 as item 13 so nothing appears to have been edited — the overheard comments can be heard if you listen to the beginning of Item 13 when there is a pause whilst senior officers rejoin the meeting.
