I've never had dealings with councillors, apart from one time.
Let me just refer to this person as COUNCILLOR X.
Leading up to the last local elections, I asked Councillor X how they could help deal with the spate of illegal selling of cars on the Common. Councillor X replied, "Phone the police. What do you want me to do about it?"
With such an uncaring attitude to their local community, I think I could do much better. I won't tar all councillors with the same brush, but I think this individual is only in the game for self publicity and an ego massage.
