Politicians and the political process have been under significant scrutiny over the past few years and trust in elected representatives is at threat. This is not only unhealthy for our democracy at large, but also for our local communities. Those who are disillusioned with ‘politics’ and feel cut-out of the decision making process are less likely to vote and to take on the responsibility for affecting positive change in the areas they live.
I understand why it is that people often feel angry and distant from their MPs and consequently I am committed to changing the nature of my relationship with constituents. I promise to be respectful and as responsive as possible to the concerns of my constituents..
But ultimately I can’t do it all by myself!
