WESTOE ISSUES

ON THE AGENDA?
“ Mr Branley
couldn’t
care less”
Allen Branley has been removed as your Councillor because he has
failed to attend a single meeting on your behalf for six months.
He now claims that he resigned as a matter of principle – you now know
that that is simply not true.
Remember, in1994, Allen Branley was removed as a Councillor for the Cleadon Park ward
where he again failed to attend a single council meeting in a six month period. This latest
insult is proof that he has nothing but utter contempt for the people he claims to represent.
Westoe residents will now have to foot a £17,000+ bill to pay for this unnecessary by
election caused by a man who couldn’t care less about his constituents. It’s time for the
people of Westoe to send a strong message to this arrogant, lazy politician. YOU WILL NOT
BE TAKEN FOR A RIDE BY A MULTI MILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE CAN BUY THIS
ELECTION with his endless leaflets, delivered by a professional company at considerable
personal expense.

Mr Branley’s attendance record at Council meetings on your behalf 2004-09

Year Number of Meetings he could have Number of meetings he actually


attended on your behalf attended on your behalf
2003/04 47 19
2004/05 32 17
2005/06 35 6
2006/07 27 7
2007/08 27 8
2008/09 23 3

He says in his leaflet “It’s been a privilege to represent


you” – the fact is that he has FAILED to represent you.

We know that there are real issues of concern in the Westoe
and Chichester area which need to be tackled and resolved.
They won’t be while Mr Branley treats you with contempt
and refuses to attend meetings on your behalf.

Representing you is not something to be taken lightly


Neither should your vote be taken for granted
