In a posting on our Facebook page, councillor Tony Green wrote: “John, I am personally very much in favour of having freedom of information legislation but to get something kickstarted I'd need to get some of my colleagues on board. Tony”
So what can we do to gain support? I can see three things:
1) encourage your friends to ‘like’ our Facebook page . The more ‘like’s we have the more people will listen to what we have to say;
2) write to your councillor(s) and/or the newspapers and tell them you support having Freedom of Information legislation here;
3) consider standing as a councillor yourself – the general election is only a year away!
