June 4th 2009: Council elections

On the 4th of June, I've got the Wiltshire Council elections.

My ward is Trowbridge Central, so I've got a choice between John Knight (Liberal Democrat) and Chris March (Conservative). Let's have a look and see what they say...

John Knight

Presumably he will follow A Liberal Democrat Vision for Wiltshire. The first page emphasises prudence and fiscal rectitude. Good. In the justice section there's a mention of restorative justice, which is interesting. Education, fairly standard nothing to frighten the horses. Funding decided by local democracy. Environment: okay, but would rather hear talk of free trade than fair trade. They have a 'leisure' section. I hate this use of the word leisure.

Chris March

The conservatives' don't seem to have a manifesto for the Wiltshire council elections. There is a page on Chris March, but it contains no details of what he intends to do.

Conclusion

Well, the Lib Dems have my vote for the Wiltshire council election on June 4th.
