Teignbridge District Council is actively promoting new councillor candidates via numerous events throughout the district.
When challenged, EDDC it seems is not – choosing instead to send CEO (and supposedly neutral civil servant) Mark Williams to selected events, only upon invitation. Like trueblue Budleigh Salterton.
It’s almost like they don’t want any new candidates signing up – thus allow the incumbents to romp back home without a contest thus maintaining (their trueblue) status quo…
Odd that …..
And maybe time to check that electoral roll again.
We don’t want to find ourselves with 6,000+ too few voters again do we, Mr Williams.
As Private Eye might say: Shom mistake shurely …
