    Having recently complained to my councillor about the state of the roads they said the same. More people need to complain to the council. I agree too one person’s voice isn’t enough

    That’s not quite how equality works these days… Ask a feminist!

    Surely they knew when they stood for election that using their car would be essential?? The allowence they get should cover all expenses but it’s nice to see most don’t! Also how refreshing to read some councillor’s refusing pay rises and paying for ipads. Not sure I would pay for the iPad as if they are forced to have it but nice to see some care about how Wrexham tax payers money is spent. Bravo

    Having done a little research into this unknown person of Wrexham I see the choriographed photos have started already! Checked FB and there is a lovely profile picture of her in a Wrexham FC coat holding a Wrexham FC football, clearly inside the club shop I doubt she actually bought anything to contribute to our club. Embarrassing start but she’s probably done as much as our current MP which is nothing. Hopefully come election time we have more choice.

    There is, of course, poverty in Gresford and in all Wrexham wards. But I agree that Atkinson isn’t showing a particular interest even though he is the councillor who is supposed to be leading the strategy.

    Research undertaken last year and reported in the Wrexham Leader stated that 1 in 4 children in Wrexham were living in poverty. I fear that ratio will have increased.

    What do you Suggest Barb? Are you really bothered about anti poverty or, did you just set up your profile to attack Atkinson?

    ooooo Bore off! change the record and embrace it. I assume you lot are from the “back in my day” & “it’s not like it used to be” club! Perhaps instead of winging about it , you actually went there spent, some money and at least looked like you were having a good time the place will thrive and flourish! It’s here nowt and you can do about it. so enjoy it!

    WOW. I have been there and I’m not impressed at all. So don’t have a rant at people who have been there having a moan about the money the council are wasting.

    But it’s something positive, how could people possibly cope! I often wonder if these people moaning would only stop if Wrexham became the place they ‘supposedly’ don’t want to see it become. Get with the times, stop being an arm chair politician all you are doing is dragging the town down!

    Its all very well Atkinson calling everyone who objects to the ‘Accommodation’ Lets put him to the test ! There is a parcel of land in Gresford opposite the Plough that has been an eyesore and junkyard for years, let’s built the accommodation there in his ‘back yard’. Let him come out publicly and state that he would support such a project in Gresford. Let him come out and say he will actively work with the council to find land and accommodate this development in Gresford ! Following the Gresford project, there will be less grounds for councillors refusing or abstaining from similar plans in other areas. Put your ‘Money Where your Mouth is” and “What’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander” over to you Atkinson. GRESFORD FOR THE ACCOMMODATION.

    Nothing has been said over objecting, it’s more about the comments made by a few elected members.

    Some shocking comments made and not forgetting Cllr Jones’s “should be built as if it was a prison”. What a way to reach out to people in need of help.

    I’m confused, seen this being quoted as a Tory budget but now Independents?

    Who cares? But the man does make a valid point. What happened to that budget? That was the one I was looking forward to viewing!
