Dear Rotherham Politics readers,
Just been having a decko at the webpage of our hapless Laybah SY PCC candidate to see if he’s mentioning the unmentionable that’s lately descended on dear old Rovrum.
Guess what? Not a sausage. Not a skerritt. Nope not a word, sentence, full point or comma. Well no surprise there then.
In a Joint statement of endorsement the following said: “As a lifelong South Yorkshire resident with over 25 years service to the community in the roles of: councillor, magistrate, police authority vice chair, union representative, school governor and charity trustee Shaun is in touch with ordinary people, he has the necessary skills, experience and integrity to serve you and he has a genuine empathy for the issues facing our communities – we hope you will give Shaun your support on the 15th of November.”
