I thought I would let you know that I am now an official independent candidate in the Rotherham Borough council elections, standing for the Dinnington Ward.
My Labour Party opponent will be none other than Simon, I have a turnip named after me, Tweed. Labour have already been delivering leaflets around the area and I thought I would share a part of it with you:
“Following a strong campaign by your three Labour councillors and local residents we shall shortly see the long awaited extension of the traffic island on the approach to the mini roundabout at the junction of Knavesmire avenue. As a result of this campaign the improvements will RESTRICT THE ABILITY TO DRIVE THE WRONG WAY AROUND THE ROUNDABOUT.”
All the things that are happening to the people of our area and this is Labours’ main bragging point, the other being the iconic, their word not mine, Riverside House. The expensive development for the councillors.
Anyway I digress, I would ask that if there are people out there who are willing to assist me in my endeavours I would be happy to see them at my first street meeting in Dinnington. It will be held next Friday near the indoor market at 10:30am.
It would great if we could make a push and finally unseat at least one Labour councillor from Dinnington, those of you who can’t help, I hope you will vote.
