Introductions are in order…
Meet Brian Robinson. A councillor in the quaint and beautiful Forest of Dean….
Brian has done many many things in his community.
Hes been a councillor.
Hes been a school governor.
he stuck up for Councillor Edwards when she was off on long term sick (and had moved out of the area) and put forward a vote that she still get paid £4,500
In 2016 he claimed £860 in travelling allowances on top of his £9,000 stipend.
You get the idea… He cares for his community… He cares for kids…
This Brian is a nice guy!
You know what?
He also helps run a council road users campaign called i care do you!
See his Sainthood is virtually guarenteed!
Ah… But… This man who cares for his constituents SO MUCH that her has saved them £600 my cancelling a school bus.
It’s only 23 kids. It’s just under 3 miles. The roads not too bad
So… Let’s look at the figures
The bus savings are £600.
So the children’s safety is worth 170 pounds less than his travel expenses.
The children’s safety is worth £8,000 less than his representing their parents.
The children’s safety is worth£3,900 less than a councillor who has moved and can no longer represent her constituents.
Welcome to councillor Robinson’s world.
Go to the forest road safety page. “I care do you” like the page, post on the page with polite comments asking why the council thinks so little of its future. Ask them what makes a councillor so much more valuable than 23 children’s safety.
Then sign the petition…
