Exeter Green’s have uncovered a missing councillor in St David’s ward. The councillor has been absent from the city for nearly a year, has missed 90% of the council meetings he was due to attend, and is not responding to requests from residents. Exeter Labour Party have kept this under wraps. Incredibly, the Labour Leader told us that what his councillors did was ‘none of his business’, showing a complete contempt for local democracy. We have written to the council suggesting that there has been a breach of the council’s own constitution; watch this space.
Diana Moore, prospective Green Party candidate for St David’s ward said: “Residents have told me that they want a councillor on the ground, working hard and ensuring their voices are heard in the Council. It is clear that Exeter Labour want power without responsibility”.
