Councillors should live in their elected area

May I offer my apologies to Coun. Julie Cooper after her response to my letter in the Express on October 25th, stating I didn’t get my facts right concerning where she lives.

Yes Coun. Cooper does live in Burnley – just. When I think of a local councillor, I like to think he or she lives in or near their elected area, not the rural outskirts.

Still as Coun. Cooper states, “all publicity is good publicity.” So at least she gained some by writing her letter. I have included my full name so Coun. Cooper knows it was a she who wrote the letter.
