It is important that local people have their say. It is easy to criticise the council but they are elected by residents. Essentially, we get what we vote for.
We want to highlight the council election 2022. We also want to highlight that everyone has the right to stand as a candidate. You could be the next councillor.
In Bryn and Cwmavon only 5 people stood for three council seats in the last election with a turnout of just 42%. More people didn’t vote than did.
Being challenged and accountable to the people you represent is vital for democracy. The more people who engage with a political discussion the better chance that an area represent the people.
American politician Gary Johnson said “Regardless of who wins, an election should be a time for optimism and fresh approaches.”
