ERYC Chief Executive Caroline Lacey has remained silent for over two weeks on the subject of denying Councillors access to confidential papers.

  3. Can ERYC remove access to any confidential papers that Councillor Andy Strangeway wishes to see?
  4. Can ERYC remove access to any confidential papers that any ERYC Councillor wishes to see?
  5. Does the ERYC Constitution state that access to confidential papers can be denied to ERYC Councillors?

Request For Answers

I have requested Caroline Lacey to inform me when I should expect answers to my five simple questions.

Health Care Committee Report – November 2018 Meeting

The Health Care and Well Being committee meeting on Tuesday 6 November 2018 could be described as the Councillor Victoria Aitkin show.

Conservative Councillor Victoria Aitkin was the Chair of the meaning yet asked half of the questions as the other Councillors on the committee struggled to ask their questions.

Councillor Aitken needs to remind herself that to Chair a meeting you facilitate it you do not take it over.

Perhaps our Victoria should seek advice of how to Chair a meeting from her fellow Conservative Councillor Symon Fraser who proved to be an excellent Chair of the recent Standards Committee meeting.

ERYC Conservatives Standing Down

I have received copy of a hand written document stating 17 of the current 47 ERYC Conservative Councillors will not be seeking re-election in May 2019.

From information already received I can confirm that I was already aware that at least 75% of those stated had no intention of seeking re-election.

Please see the original document

I am pleased to confirm that none of my Conservative moles are listed.

Pocklington – Independents

It is no surprise that Councillor Mole from Pocklington Provincial is standing down.

It is notable that in only one Ward is a threat to the Conservatives from Independents – Pocklington Provincial.

Whistle Blowers Corner

I invite anyone who is aware of who wrote the document to share the information with me via Whistle Blowers Corner.

ERYC Conservative Councillor  may also share information with me via Whistle Blowers Corner.
