WHITTLESEY: Time to outline why I'm standing as candidate in next week's elections
AS one who has thrown my hat into the ring as a candidate for the county council elections I would like to outline my motivation. I have a family history of public service. I therefore welcome the chance to try and influence how public finances can be
AS one who has "thrown my hat into the ring'" as a candidate for the county council elections I would like to outline my motivation.
I have a family history of public service. I therefore welcome the chance to try and influence how public finances can be put to best use for the majority of working people.
In 1995 when I was elected to Fenland District Council councillors only received expenses and not an annual allowance.
I believe the role of councillor is to represent the views of your ward. It was not and should not be considered a job. Heaven knows we pay council officials enough as it is.
To this end if elected, I will be consulting with the electors to find their views on what to do with the �7,610 per annum which I would receive as an allowance.
Unfortunately I no longer fall into the category of young, but I hope my motivation meets with your criteria.
