Let’s Have Some Honesty?

On Thursday 3 May 2018, the electors of 18 wards will be given the opportunity to elect one new Councillor to represent them. The electorate should hope for and expect complete honesty in any election material published. Sadly the trend for the opposite has already been set. In “Conservatives working for the residents of Aughton” promoted by David Westley on behalf of Doreen Stephenson and Marilyn Westley” claims that “Conservatives keep their promises” are bullshit. Claims of “Securing extra, or further, £millions from the government” for highways, potholes, grass cutting, gulley cleaning, totally disregard the dreadful situation in Aughton Park and elsewhere. The LCC will be bankrupt in two years, under which government austerity watch?

In the election leaflet they refer to Scarth Hill Lane, visited by Stephenson, O’Toole, and Keith Iddon, Cabinet member for Transport and Highways. Well, just in case they missed the real road situation there, here it is, site repaired weeks ago, what a mess again today , and just a little way across the road you see deep down cobbles  and more cobbles , appalling!

The wards, with only 7 Tory candidates so far are:
• Ashurst…current member Labour Gagen

• Aughton & Downholland…Declared Tory candidate O’Toole
• Burscough East…Declared Tory candidate Melling
