DAVID Broad's letter (February 7) was a fantastic own goal. He was elected on a strong independent ticket in 2003, only to join the Conservative group a year later. The CDC website confirms this fact.
I am not and never have have been a member of any political party.
CDC used to move forward. It started the recycling service, provided a swimming pool for Bourton-on-the-Water, and so much good quality affordable housing that it was quoted as an example of best practice in government white papers. Whitehall even sent a deputation to participate in a national conference on affordable housing hosted by CDC.
When Conservatives took control of CDC in 2003, the museum refurbishment was well under way. The Leisure Centre and many more affordable homes were planned with finance in place all ready to build.
Apart from improved recycling and selling off the Corn Hall, what has happened?
Cirencester people want services they can use, not high parking charges to pay for services district wide. No matter how we pay it, it's still all our money you are getting.
The electorate in Cirencester aren't stupid. Why do you think they turned away from the Conservatives so dramatically at the last local elections?
