Letter: Rochdale Council
Date published: 18 December 2017
In this season of goodwill and I am concerned that recent events involving Rochdale councillors, residents and others, if continued, will further short change the public of Rochdale.
There is guidance and advice to councillors from the local government office, the particular publication I recommend [available to download below] should be read by councillors and members of the public and its contents digested.
At 78 I find the need to keep abreast of developments and progress (and when I say 'progress', I use the word advisedly) if that is the correct word for going backwards, to draw attention to the fact that slanging matches in council or with members of the public must stop.
The Council recently advertised for another communications person - what for? If you are not going to communicate with the public it is money wasted.
Political parties in Rochdale will be judged on their performance or lack of it in May 2018, and on facts, not the traditional romantic notions of yesteryear which to date have destroyed Rochdale’s reputation.
The views expressed are those of the author of the letter and not those of Rochdale Online.
