Angus West Haltemprice and Howden Conservative Association

It would appear that Angus West, Chairman, Haltemprice and Howden Conservative Association is rather shy and perhaps not keen to be open and transparent as he has failed to reply to my email regards Angus West Conservative – Openness and Transparency.

Some may draw the conclusion that the Haltemprice and Howden Conservative Association do not abide by the Conservatives procedure for the selection of local government candidates in relation to “skeletons in the cupboard“.

Dee Sharpe – Director Disqualification

A “period of 3 years and 6 months from 2013”. This means that Councillor Dee Sharpe was disqualified to be a Director in May 2015 when, as part of the Haltemprice and Howden Conservative Association, she was selected to stand as a candidate for the ERYC.

Many would believe this to be a skeleton in the closet.

Chairman’s Opinion

I have emailed Angus to enquire as to his opinion. In addition I have asked if this is the reason Dee Sharpe will not be selected to stand at the next ERYC election in 2019.

Willow Park Road – Rough Repair

A resident informed me that when cycling down Willow Park Road, Wilberfoss she thought her teeth were going to shatter.

Having driven down the road this morning I fully understand what the lady means. The road has recently been resurfaced and is rough to say the least.

I have asked ERYC to take a look at the surface and consider putting on a top coat.

J – Thank you for drawing this to my attention.

Tories Seeking New Candidates For 2019

I am saddened to learn that the Tories are actively seeking new candidates for the May 2019 Pocklington Provincial election to represent them instead of getting on with representing residents now.

Current Tory Councillors

Instead of spending time looking for new candidates I would suggest that Councillor Mole and Councillor  West start to represent the residents of Pocklington Provincial. Like dutiful nodding dogs they are allowing themselves to be whipped into representing party before residents.

Role of ERYC Councillor

The following check list demonstrates how Councillor Mole and Councillor West fail residents.

  1. Represent residents at Full Council – Fail
  2. Represent residents at their committees – Fail
  3. Reply to emails – Fail
  4. Hold the Leader to account – Fail
  5. Hold senior officers to account – Fail
  6. Meet the residents in the villages – Fail
  7. Make themselves available to all – Fail

Public Meeting

I am sure come the next election the Tories will be wanting your vote to allow themselves to represent the Tories on the pretext of representing the residents.

I am now approaching mid way in my term of office and I would like Councillor Mole and Councillor West to attend a public meeting with me to explain to residents why they allow themselves to be whipped into representing the party and constantly fail to reply to emails.

Buckley To Face Investigation

In Buckley’s Conduct Gets Worse I described how the conduct of Mathew Buckley, ERYC Head of Legal hit a new low by stating to me: “you are incapable of understanding the point that is being made”

No ERYC officer should ever state a member is intellectually challenged – thick in old money.

I am pleased to confirm that ERYC Chief Executive Caroline Lacey has referred Buckley’s comments for investigation.

Darren Stevens, ERYC Interim Director of Corporate Resources is to investigate my complaint.

I would like to thank Caroline for referring this for investigation.

Storking Lane – Sealing Of Edges

ERYC have confirmed that the road repairs on Storking Lane will be sealed ASAP.

“A works order has been issued for the whole of Moorfield Way and The Paddocks to have repairs carried out using the carriageway slurry seal product but the team was moved to carry out urgent work elsewhere when they had reached a convenient place to break. This work will be undertaken as soon as possible.

The sealing of the edges of the patch at Storking Lane will be undertaken when the team are in the area carrying out work of a similar nature on other patches within the next few weeks.”

Well done ERYC.
