Susan Shotter for Marl
I joined Sue on her campaign to become the next County Councillor for the Marl Ward yesterday. The weather was absolutely atrocious and we all got soaked, that said eight volunteers braved the severe conditions and residents appreciated the commitment from Sue's team.
Sue really is getting a positive response on the doorstep and when asked by residents, I was able to endorse her. I believe if elected Sue and I will be very effective for the residents of Marl and Sue really does look at the bigger picture, for example, she wants to scrutinise the Winter Gritting programme for instance.
I have been browsing some of the blogs and it really saddens me to see gutless anons having personal attacks on Sue and indeed the other candidates. Sue's campaign like all our campaigns, will not be drawn into the gutter and I believe that to be the right and proper way to conduct campaigns. You have to wonder what is wrong with these sad individuals.
Anyway feedback is positive from postal voters and there is still much to do, I will be able to assist Sue a little more this coming week but the rest of today is with the family, as we feel Sunday should be a day of rest and have never delivered or canvassed on Sundays. Full English (can't beat Edwards of Conwy) and time with the family, Sundays should not be more complicated than this!!
