I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the role of local Councillors. Asking “What’s the point of a councillor? What are they for?”.
I’ve always been very proud to represent the Ashfield Council ward I was born in, proud to speak up for my area in the Council and happy to fight for the changes I know Ashfield needs.
Lately though two big events have caused me to question if that’s what I should be doing.
