The right representative

By Jenny Wade

LETTERS From Jenny Wade, Ryde:

I was at first bemused but then annoyed to receive through my letterbox recently a double-sided leaflet from a Cllr Gary Taylor, Conservative Ryde South.

It was targeting homes in the Ryde East ward which, at a quick glance, could easily have lead someone who wasn’t aware of who their ward councillor was to believe

he was their elected councillor.

To put the record straight, the current elected representative for Ryde East is Cllr David Knowles.

I feel very sorry for the people in Ryde South who voted for Cllr Taylor.

Do they realise they have an elected member who obviously doesn’t feel a sufficient sense of loyalty to them to wait until the appropriate time next year before starting to canvass for support in his next chosen ward?
