There has been a lot of feedback from the ward’s residents, especially on from the Alton Estate, regarding the apathy of the Roehampton and Putney Heath ward Councillors with regards to various issues ranging from fly tipping, to how they have handled the regeneration (campaigning on it being a “farce” and this word seeming to disappear from their vocabulary once voted in), and how they have back tracked on various topics such as the favourable opinions of Allbrook House.
This had lead to a query as to where past Councillors have come from. Well, the below sentence highlights takes you to a folder which has the ‘statement of nominated persons’ for past Council elections. It is interesting to note how many nominations do not come from the ward. It is hoped that for the 2018 Local Council elections that residents from the ward step and challenge those whom are using the ward for whatever purpose they have in mind.
Questions that came to mind when giving a read of these ‘statement of nominated persons’ were;
- How many of these names listed have gone on to assist the ward?
- What happened to these individuals when they did not get elected? Did they hang around and try to assist the community? Have a think, let’s take a look at the 2014 election, where are the likes of Mr Anthony, Mr Fenwick, Ms Petros?
- Of our current crop of ward Councillors, one lives in the ward. What will happen if they do not run for 2018 office, or do run and get voted out, will they still be around supporting the ward?
Ward residents, please start having a think about the future because many of us will still live here when elected and non-elected Councillors come and go.
