I see we have 2 Independent Candidates standing for the Parish Council, I admire their commitment standing against the oranized structure of the Conservatives. If they get in we may, at last, get some local CSP issues dealt with.

what issues are you saying that independent councillors can deal with that conservative ones cannot? And why can they deal with them when you say conservatives can’t? Serious question.

I'm not saying Conservative councillors can not deal with the issues, just that they have not dealt with them. It took a resident to get the parking sorted, no one has dealt with the plague of potholes, litter bins have been removed so now we have more litter, the Village is plagued with graffiti nothing has been done. These are local issues that I want the Parish Council to be dealt with, either directly,  or, where they can't, by pressurising BCC.

Having an all conservative parish council (with the exception of Karen Dickson) , 3 of which are also county councillors , isn’t good, we all need balance and people with a variety of outlooks and viewpoints. I also think that if people are standing for a variety of political positions they are more likely imho to prioritise their own positions rather than those of the village.

Also, if there is no political advantage to having conservative parish councillors, why do they field a candidate against an independent if they refuse to stand as a conservative? Surely on a parish council the persons commitment and expertise are more important, clearly not to our local conservatives.

I also agree with Sunray that some councillors have shown they’re not fighting for the village, not all of course!! But to name the good you indirectly name the bad!! We all have 4 votes, please, please use 2 to keep Karen Dickson on the council and add Anne Marie Vlader, Karen is a proven work horse and huge advocate for the village and Anne Marie has proven herself tenacious and resilient and motivated! We need that.

Well I’ve been and voted and was surprised that there were lots of new names for the parish council for the conservatives so my above post is now incorrect! 3 we’re on both councils but that isn’t the case now.....

I think it’s fair to say that Labour do not stand much of a chance (an understatement quite rightly) but when their candidates put their address as “address Buckinghamshire” they’ve signed their own political death warrants. At least the rest have the courage to be open. I suggest there will be a mix of Tories and Independents. Hartlepool should be fun eh?! 😂
