Letter: Budget Fixing Council meeting

Date published: 05 March 2018

Dear Editor,

During the Budget Fixing Council meeting Liberal Leader Councillor Andy Kelly was once again saying how he wants to reduce the number of councillors in each ward from three to two.

Do you think that we can therefore presume that as the Liberal’s already have two Councillors in Milnrow & Newhey ward, they will not be putting forward a candidate for a third position in the forthcoming local elections?

Perhaps I'm wrong, but I can only speculate that behind all his talk and public gestures they will still be doing their best to get a third Liberal councillor elected into the ward on 3 May.


Councillor Peter Winkler
