Election: time has come for a change
Dear Sir, — I found the comments from Suzie Akers Smith in last week’s paper to be a pretty accurate reflection of the current Congleton Town Council and our town councillors.
Having attended a number of town council meetings it has always struck me how little some of the elected councillors contribute to the proceedings and I have often wondered why some of them bother at all, albeit that they perhaps mistakenly consider that the title of town councillor gives them some kudos.
This time there are a number of Independents standing for the council and I would hope that the electorate of the town recognises that there is probably far more potential with Independent candidates than has evidently been the case with the current Conservatives.
