Public Comments


Very very poor result, same old boring faces with a lack of understanding of the word pro-active, a gloomy day for Warminster indeed.
I believe you were both robbed but I also believe that Vision For Warminster will continue to thrive.
I was very happy to vote MacDonald yesterday and wish you all the best.

I would just add that the councillor who won the seat in my ward has not visited either my home or my business, both in the same ward and I also have had no hint of promotional literature through my door over the last few weeks. If he could not be bothered to canvass, then I am of the opinion that he can not be bothered with the welfare of this town. Shame on him.

We've just had news of the local UK elections here in Australia, and I
remembered your campaign. Sorry you weren't elected,
but you got a decent level of support and I congratulate you for
running. It can be a hard life as an independent, but the value can be
in influencing the debate rather than being elected outright - so well
done, and hold them to account!
