DEMOCRACY FOR STAMFORD

Hello,

I'm Steve Carroll of Protect Stamford. I have raised this petition, as I am concerned about the undemocratic voting practices of Stamford Town Council and I think our community deserves better!

Better Community Services

I am a volunteer councillor for Stamford Town Council; I first got involved because of my concerns about overdevelopment and issues that affect our community. Since participating in town council life, I have gained a will to represent local people at a government level across a broad range of issues to create a sustainable Stamford - from community issues, schooling, social care, the GP surgery and hospital, to protecting our green spaces, our homes, the environment, local businesses and helping create jobs.

I am passionate about making changes to future-proof our town, community and environment.

Dubious Voting Practices

Recently, I was voted on to the Stamford Neighbourhood committee by the Stamford Town Council (STC), however the Chair of Stamford First decided he didn’t like the idea - so a STC sub group decided to have another vote until the got the result they wanted. This tactic was adopted to support the 'stealth tax' grass cutting too, a sub group of STC decided to have another vote (after two public votes) until they achieved 'the results they liked'.

Local Government Needs You

This is NOT how DEMOCRACY works, we need MORE local government councilors like YOU and ME - fair, objective and in it for the COMMUNITY nothing more! Please register your distain for these practices.

Regards,

Steve Carroll
