Poor responses

In an age when voter apathy is high and confidence in our central government and local councils is low we find it a real shame that candidates don’t take every opportunity they are given to communicate with the electorate. To gain our confidence and let us know what they stand for – after all it is OUR votes they have to earn and once elected they work for US.
