I was talking with a lady in her middle ages yesterday. She said that the council needed new blood.
She admired the enthusiasm and hard work of Will.i.am Scobie and has been impressed with some of the recent councillors.
But she had a problem with all the ones that are using it to top up their pension.
They may be good thinkers, but they are not doers.
They struggle with emails and rarely reply. The don't tweet, blog, facebook, Instagram or fax.
And she felt that the modern councillor needed to engage with the local internet scene.
But less preaching, more interacting.
I don't mean to be disrespectful with these comments - they are simply what people are saying. Many older councillors have had an excellent time representing the towns. But perhaps its time to let the new blood come through.
