Appeal to candidates

I WISH to say all the best to the candidates who are standing in the local elections.

I would ask the winners to do the decent thing, that if they are unable to live in their electoral wards they at least live in the town they represent.

Otherwise we will be having councillors commuting to county hall in Wakefield via Liverpoool, Northampton or London.

I believe in local democracy and that it should be an honour, duty and a fully committed local person who represents us.
