Thank you for reading this introduction.
I expect by now you are a little tired of reading pledges and promises from various prospective candidates. With this in mind I will keep my message brief. I have lived and run my own business in Bardney for the last 36 years. I have served as a parish councillor for thirty-three years endeavouring to improve and serve the community. One of the many reasons I have decided to stand as an Independent District Councillor is the same feeling of “not being listened to” that many residents feel.
Planning, transport, wind turbines and flooding are all important issues. When residents make observations and raise concerns, they are often left with the feeling they are neither heard nor considered. Being Independent I will be free of any party political whip, free to concentrate on what you need or want.
