|LibDems in happier times.|
It’s now been over 4 weeks since lockdown and the public have heard very little from Arun Cabinet members despite the District and the UK being in one of the most serious crises since the Second World War.
There has been an exception, one Cabinet Member has issued a monthly report and this has been excellent, its informative, she engages and by contrast is shaming her six other colleagues.
We really need to hear from her colleagues and we call for monthly Cabinet member reports that are issued to us as Councillors and to the general public
We know the LibDems are not keen on the system they inherited, but the system has worked and delivered when the Conservatives held power.
The Council delivered on many worthwhile projects like the Wave, The Leisure contract, Affordable housing and a general improvement with customer satisfaction at over 80% when we were in power.
So the question every resident and tax payer of Arun should be asking is why have the Arun Cabinet been so quiet? Why are they resisting Virtual Scrutiny meetings? Why have they not set up a Community Hub like other Districts and Boroughs in West Sussex. We all understand that criticism has to be constructive in this time of crisis, but organisations have to deliver for their residents.
Aruns Conservatives have some good ideas and advice to give, but despite many calls to engage with us the administration have stubbornly refused any offers of help.
