I am one of the people who buy the Pontefract and Castleford Express weekly.
Reading through this newspaper weekly we’re bombarded by Wakefield Council announcing enforced possible cutbacks here, there and everywhere, to the detriment of the local people.
One obvious saving is always conveniently being overlooked by the council, by that I mean the number of councillors representing the general public in the Wakefield district.
Pontefract alone, north and south, has six councillors representing the area - why?
Police release images of man wanted in connection with serious assault at Wakefield pub
Crack-addicted shop robber claimed pal borrowed his clothing
New coffee shop unveiled in old Genesis Barbers building in Ossett
Heartless thieves steal £600 watches from Wakefield Hospice charity shop
Angry revenge-porn boyfriend jailed for sending explicit photo of his ex
Reduce this to one councillor per ward and continue to reduce this down all across the Wakefield district. It would very interesting to learn how much saving could be made?
