Let’s hope after Christmas new people give serious thought to whether to stand for the Council elections in May.
There is a plea though to all those who get elected as ‘Independents’ you should all come together and draw up a manifesto of pledges – the current system with some Councillors only worried about ‘their’ potholes or ‘their school’ and don’t give a damn for the whole Wrexham picture. Yes people are elected to sort local issues but these must be in the context of county wide services such as Education, Social Service, Roads etc. There is just no accountability in place at the moment because most Independents have been elected on very local issues and then are not strong enough to understand the ;BIG; picture issues.
JaneJ excellent points on Councilors and their “their.”
If my local councillor went up for election and said he would fill in the potholes in my street, chase off the junkies and bring back flogging in Queens square every second Monday then i would vote for him.
WE STILL NEED ALUN!
To be born Welsh is to be born privileged, not with a silver spoon in your mouth, but with music in your blood, and poetry in your soul.
I would not vote for anybody that puts up as an independent.
