Apologies for the poor quote from Rocky, but at the moment that’s what I think. As previously mentioned tonight sees a meeting of the North Area Tenants Panel in Glossop.
The reason I could have been a contender is because one of the items on the agenda for tonight is election of Chair, but because I’m a local Councillor I can’t stand.
The reason for this is the tradition joy of differing policies from different government departments, which on the one hand are saying that councillors should be taking on roles as leaders of the community. Yet on the other hand are telling ALMO’s such as High Peak Community Housing, that they must be doing everything they can to appear separate from the Council.
Now I’m not saying that I would have won or that having a Councillor as chair would be a good thing, but the chance to have been a contender would have been nice !
