Do you want a Change?

There's a saying that if you always do what you have always done, then you'll always get what you have always got. We are less than a month away from the May local elections and by the time you read this article you'll probably know who the candidates are that are standing in your Ward.

Now the Council have been trying to persuade people to stand in the elections and a Council Spokesperson said that the town needs ' people who are capable, vibrant, energetic and engaged, with a commitment to local residents and a passion for making change happen.'

I don't think anyone would disagree with this statement, and I think it's useful to consider it, when deciding on how to cast our vote. Put simply - is your current Councillor, and the Party they represent, making a real positive difference to you, your family and your community?

Put another way - do we want more Labour control, or do we want a change at the Council? If we want what we've always got then we vote Labour, which clearly keeps the current Council Leader in. But if we want real change, then we must vote for it.

I wish you the best of luck in your deliberations. Mail article 5th April
