Local elections

The local election campaign is well and truly under way with just two weeks to polling day. I have been out with candidates across the constituency canvassing and taking soundings of how people feel on the doorstep. There's a real sense that people are pleased with how our Councillors have managed the borough well and at the same time they will want to show their diappointment with Government. I've no wish to set our expectations too high, but am confident that we will have some good results on May 1st. Last night out in Wolston we had a large, entusiastic team out, and I really enjoyed the response from the people I met.
