Section 3: Assisting Constituents

I have responded to all queries raised to me by my constituents either by telephone call, letter, email or home visit. I have responded to a great many issues within the ward on a weekly basis. Issues and concerns have been varied over this last year covering everything from pot holes to overhanging trees. All issues have been dealt with promptly with residents contacted regularly after an issue has been resolved to make sure everything is still as it should be.

I also deliver a regular newsletter to all households within the ward together with my two ward colleagues throughout the year to keep residents informed and to continually refresh the methods residents can use to contact me by phone, email or in person at my address located within the ward. Many residents regularly now visit me at my home within the ward with their issues and concerns and approach me when I am out and about in the area. As part of a ward team we offer surgeries as often as needed. I also attend local PACT meetings to address residents' issues.

Section 4: Supplementary Information

I believe that I have undertaken my role and responsibilities to the best of my ability and have taken all decisions within the best interests of the residents of my ward and the residents of Wyre Forest. In terms of whether any outside obligations impact on my role, I am employed full time and this does have an impact on my availability but I believe that I have balanced being employed and my democratic role very well.
