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.
- Represent residents at Full Council – Fail
- Represent residents at their committees – Fail
- Reply to emails – Fail
- Hold the Leader to account – Fail
- Hold senior officers to account – Fail
- Meet the residents in the villages – Fail
- Make themselves available to all – Fail
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.

Dear Kay and Claude,
Could I please refer you to Link
I would like to invite you both to a public meeting to allow you the opportunity to explain to residents why you both allow yourselves to be whipped into representing the party and constantly fail to reply to emails?
