Spent a very encouraging Saturday morning canvassing in my ward with six other Lib Dem colleagues. Whilst the Coalition continues to be battered by the right and left winged press who, following Barnsley, have started writing the Party’s obituary, the feeling on the doorsteps is much more upbeat!
Members of the public were happy to engage and some key issues, affecting the local community, were discussed. Pot holes, the lack of cycle racks in the town centre and inadequate toilet facilities (recently addressed and resolved by the Lib Dem Town Council) were common themes. It was apparent that the people of Herontye ward care about their community and the town and, if elected in May, I will be honoured to serve and represent them.
