Penyffordd Clrs hide their email addresses

Three councillors volunteer their email addresses, the other nine either hide theirs or do not have one. It would appear they that hide email addresses stand for council on their terms and not that of the community. This shows the underlying sickness in our local democracy distorted by the "sheet of ten".  There are 12 places for community council. Last election 10 of them stood on one sheet. You have to be asked to get on the sheet. No need for traipsing the streets, spending £200 getting leaflets printed and published, talking to people just hand your photo and a few details over to Clr Tom Jones and Cllr Colin Bithell and the jobs done.

I wonder how many older residents are "helped" with their postal vote. The odds are stacked against a fresh face who is not part of the weary old pack.

The two current councillors who did not stand on the sheet of 10. Cllr Cindy Hinds quite obviously as she is Labour and the sheet of 10 are "Independent" ie do as Tom says. Also Cllr David Williams who is Independent had separate literature printed.
