Following the leaflet drop in Newton this weekend many people are returning their petition forms.  I think this is testament to the failure of Newton’s current councillors – all three Independent (but with very strong Labour leanings).  They have been in place for 10 years in two cases and 4 years in one case and have achieved nothing in Newton.  I have known speeding in Newton has been a problem since I was a kid 20 years ago.  It amazes me that nothing has been done yet.

I can assure all Newton residents that if I am your county councillor I will not let this rest.  Keep the letters, emails and petitions coming in.
