  2. I found particularly interesting that the actual role and responsibilities of a councillor seem to have reduced in inverse proportion to the increase of cost!
  3. I don't believe local councilors should be party affiliated. My local councilor (Lib Dem), in a totally conservative area everywhere else, is bloody brilliant. I get a news letter every month outlining what he is working on in our area. If you want to get hold of him you ring the mobile or his home, e-mail etc. These newsletters also let people know what his future plans are.

    He is constantly facing down the local council, and managed to half the expenses to all councilors. His view is about 6K is enough for running the day to day councilors requirements.
