Keep our hard work­ing coun­cil­lor

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

IT IS TIME for our lo­cal elec­tions again, Karen Dick­son has just com­pleted her first four years as a coun­cil­lor for the cen­tral ward as an in­de­pen­dent and we are urg­ing you to turn up and vote for Karen once more.

We have known Karen, her hus­band and two chil­dren since 2003. She ar­rived from South Africa in that year.

We have a very hard worker in our midst in Karen, she has helped open up our closed li­brary, helped run con­sul­ta­tions on New­lands Park and Holy Cross Con­vent, she is on the CSP youth com­mit­tee and many more. We can­not list them all.

Karen is an as­set to us, so please vote for Karen again. We will never find an­other per­son so ded­i­cated, she must be our voice in Chal­font St Peter.

stand­ing.

Would it not be fair to have at least two prospec­tive coun­cil­lors as a min­i­mum to fight for each seat? That way all the res­i­dents of Chal­font St Peter would have the op­por­tu­nity to vote if they so wished to.

Why, also, is some­one who doesn’t live in a vil­lage ward po­ten­tially able have a seat and be able to make de­ci­sions about the vil­lage when lo­cal res­i­dents have to fight for the right to be elected to sit on their parish coun­cil?

At the same time, is it also fair that a coun­cil­lor who lives out­side of a vil­lage can make de­ci­sions about it when only those who live in the parish can speak at parish coun­cil meet­ings?

I hope that ev­ery­one who has the op­por­tu­nity to vote in the parish elec­tions to­day does so, un­like my­self and oth­ers who do not have the op­por­tu­nity to vote!

So come on folks, just this once, put your po­lit­i­cal rosette to one side – it re­ally won’t hurt – and vote for a can­di­date who re­ally does care for the place we live and the peo­ple who live there.
