Goodbye And Good Riddance To Two Hatter

Voters living in West Lancashire Borough Council’s Hesketh-with-Becconsall  Ward will go to the polls on Thursday 19 July 2018 for a by-election to elect a new Councillor. This by-election will cost WL taxpayers circa £8,000 because Paul Moon resigned mid-term after being in post for two years during which he was paid £9,284 in allowances from our taxes, for, in his own words, doing “us a favour”. He was referring to his Conservative Party, as only they could nominate and endorse his candidacy.

As was known, but not then revealed to West Lancashire voters he was a Wyre Borough councillor with a dubious record including a resignation for throwing a “poo bag” at a pensioner during a public meeting.

Now, having been elected on 6 June as Wyre Borough Council Chairman of Planning, his annual special responsibility allowance there is £6,204 + £4,276 basic allowance. 

Perhaps the local WL Conservative Party might consider making a donation of £9,284 to WLBC for whatever that “favour” was? And might they also not repeat their stupidity again?

NB Don’t believe what WLBC says on its website…”Thursday, June 14, 2018. Apply now for postal and proxy votes for the Hesketh-with-Becconsall Ward By-election. Voters living in West Lancashire Borough Council’s Hesketh-with-Becconsall Ward will go to the polls on Thursday 19 July 2017 for a By-election to elect a new Councillor. If you live in Hesketh-with-Becconsall Ward and are registered to vote you can vote in the elections even if you can’t get to your polling station on that day”…cock-up on date by Kim Webber, Returning Officer for the By-election!
