DO local councillors really care about the views of the people the claim to represent?
About three months ago we had a residents’ meeting with our local councillor and someone else from the council to air our views on a particular issue. They listened carefully and we had a good discussion.
At the end of the meeting we were told that they would go back to the council and that we would be kept informed.
Well surprise, surprise, not one resident that I have spoken to had heard a thing.
In my opinion they really do not care, but I’m sure that when the time comes for re-election they will be knocking on my door asking for my vote.
