Should I Stay or Should I Go - Mandy Thomas

Cllr Mandy Thomas has to turn up to the OSP Environment today or Mandy is no longer a District Councillor. That is the stark fact behind of this Councillor who promised "to work hard for you" in her election literature back in 2008. The law is very specific. Unless this Councillor is given dispensation by the Council, they are automatically out of office if they don't attend at least once in 6 months.

According to the HDC website Mandy last attended a meeting of the Council on 15th July 2010. Her last chance of staying in office is the meeting today.

Even if Mandy puts in an appearance this Councillor will have attended 1 meeting in the last 6 months. The equates to £2,200 a meeting. Good money when you can get it. Hardly hard working!

If I was running the Liberal Democrats this would be on the front page of every leaflet. An own goal for the Conservatives.
