Cllr Stephenson Declines To Attend Halsall Parish Annual Meeting

In a remarkable snub to the Halsall Parish Council this evening borough Cllr Doreen Stephenson declined to attend and refused to provide the traditional Annual Report to the council and members of the public who attended. Residents reacted with anger by stating she had done no work on their behalf so any report would have been short anyway. She was described as useless and accused of treating the public with disdain and disrespect. A picture of her taken from her “Intouch” or as it was described “Outoftouch” leaflet was placed on a seat that had been reserved for her IMG_00000007 as a token of their disgust. A long list of questions the residents had prepared went unasked. Residents remembered the disgrace of  last year when her [Downholland] Annual Report was written by Cllr David Westley and included “rubbish”. As stated on her Intouch, she is seeking re-election on 5th May.


  1. Stephenson should now consider her position untenable and resign. She’s a bloody disgrace.

    • Well, resignation would be the easy option. Surely a humiliating defeat for her at the ballot box would give the residents of Halsall sweet revenge? Of course, it needs the message to reach out to the “true blues” of Halsall that enough is enough, and it is THEIR council tax that pays her almost £5,000 annually for her incompetence?

  2. A gift to her political opponents. If you can’t stand the heat…

    • Yes, truly a freebie and as for the heat! Let’s face it, she is more a shirker than a worker, better shunted into the party side-lines and hoping to hang on in Halsall. But this wasn’t the way to do it. She held the seat by 29 votes last time, any odds being offered on her beating that?
