Conservative Eastbourne Councillor for Ratton Ward Tony Freebody talks in 2018 about holding the LibDem led cabinet to account by offering credible alternatives to decisions or discussions.
Individually councillors talk to local residents about the things that make a real difference to resident’s lives; public anti-social behaviour, noisy neighbours and of course…bins not being emptied on time!
And of course, signposting and point people in the right direction so they speak to the right people. And quite, often, actually getting in touch with council employees on the residents behalf to make sure something is done about a particular issue ie Trading Standards at ESCC or the Police.
And how Councillors work to make Eastbourne a better place to live by looking at all sorts of issues from working towards making sure that Eastbourne has fast internet connectivity to help Eastbourne employers compete in this digital world.
