hi to all bloggers, please ensure that you make your vote count in the elections on 4th june 2009.
for the bloggers in craven district council area please note that a number of the councillors who are standing in this election are the same councillors who appear to have left craven district council in a financial mess. dont let them fool you into believing they didnt know, they knew full well what was happening, they are experienced long standing councillors. you the voter decides whether you want more of the same or if you want a change. if you want more of the same then vote for these financially incompetent councillors, if not then give others a chance to sort the mess out and give your vote to the labour party candidates.
