Section 3: Assisting Constituents
I have visited quite a number of ward residents during the past year trying to deal with their problems. Examples being potholes, over hanging branches, parking problems and problem neighbours. I have done a number of walkabouts in the ward with other councillors and dealt with litter strewn about, damaged vehicles and overgrown alleyways. As a member of Franche Village Club I get a number of incidents reported to me by members. I am also involved in some events at St Barnabas Village Hall.
Section 4: Supplementary Information
I am very hands on and try to be high profile around the ward. I meet a lot of people out and about.
Leafleting and canvassing means that I am in touch with many members of the public and all of these activities help to be a good Councillor.
My role as an elected Councillor is to try to improve the lot of my ward members by carrying out their wishes wherever possible.
