Letter to the Editor: The Missing Councillor Oliver

March 27, 2008 8:00 AM
By Neil Matthews in Letter to the Editor, Folkestone & Hythe Herald

Cllr Carey put the case in a letter to the Herald last week that a Council's budget is the 'single most important work the Council does'.

"Perhaps she could explain why Bath resident and Shepway district Councillor Mrs Linda Oliver didn't attend this budget meeting? Indeed, since the autumn, Councillor Oliver has attended just TWO of the last 8 Hythe and Shepway full Council meetings.

How can Shepway Conservatives justify a situation where one of their colleagues lives so far away and turns up to meetings so little? Do the Conservatives really believe this is an acceptable way to represent Hythe West and its residents?
