Keith Hunter Interview by Cottingham.tv in Christchurch Community Coffee

PCC Candidate Keith Hunter would be pleased to help you with your enquiries!

He will be publicly accountable to each and all of of us as if elected as our representative commissioning the police

We’d like to have also quizzed him about traffic management including pedestrian cyclist and road safety, given the speed restrictions and limited cycle paths and  also given the serious road accidents we’ve had just in the last couple of days including Eppleworth/Raywell (Thursday) and yesterday (Friday) in Spring Bank in Hull days just after the interview.

Serious crime including gun-carrying appears to be mainly limited to West Yorkshire, with a few exceptions

PS: If the other candidates would like to contact us at cottingham.tv on facebook to book an interview, please do so ASAP. We’ve also sent invitations.

Much has changed at the National Level! Heads have rolled!

As other broadcasters said; “Politics is a brutal business!”

Europe 2.0

The Local Council Votes are being counted at Haltemprice Sports Centre from 2PM this afternoon and we hope to bring you news updates asap.

On a personal note: as a political activist and lapsed Conservative Party member, the editor has not affiliated himself to any other political party but focussed instead on representation, reform in Europe, graphics the usability and pshchology of governance and commenting.

Interview with Edward Hart

Ros Jump and Geraldine Mathieson

With the May 2015 Council Elections rapidly approaching,

deciding how to approach this interview required some thought and preparation, as the editor wanted to discuss what it was like to be a councillor interested and concerned about local politics ahead of the Elections, rather than go into details that would likely cause at least some to skip the content and change channel!

With the election nominations still out, we can’t yet approach all the parties, but would invite them to contact us for an interview if we haven’t already done so and advise that Ros, Geraldine and Lena Slater  will be standing for re-election.

Journalists and teachers share quite a lot of common interests with politicians speaking from experience, as no doubt do many other occupations.

It is unfortunate that a divide has opened up, as getting involved in public service can be exciting and rewarding – especially when you see the results of your efforts experienced and appreciated by others! (see below)

One gets the impression talking to Ros and Geraldine that 99% of council work is organizational stuff like so much other work and that the rewards of all their labours are only occasional – but worth the effort!

Now for the other background stuff, some ‘flat facts’: –

Ward Councillors

Parish information (Parish Councillors)

Cottingham Community Plan – as prepared by the parish council

The Parish Council is run on a voluntary basis

Greening the Green

We are delighted that our campaign here at cottingham.tv to green the green has been taken up and will be added to the Cottingham Community Plan for discussion ahead of the Elections!

Thank you to Christchurch Community Coffee for the best coffee and the room for the interview.
