Postal Ballots Arriving Saturday
It’s expected that the postal vote ballots for the Hampshire County Council election will start to fall on people’s doormats on Saturday morning.
This is an encouraging e-mail (received today) from a lady in Marchwood that I have never had the pleasure of meeting or speaking to. Makes me think I am in with a chance…
I just wanted to say that I have lived in Marchwood for 6 years, but Southampton for most of my life. I have never felt as though I have ‘known’ a councillor as well as I know you.
I have never known a councillor to be so visible and in touch with the community. To the extent that I was having a cuppa with my mum in Marchwood Terrace and you walked up the garden path delivering a newsletter (and I recognised you!). I am terribly impressed.
I’ve always been a labour ‘supporter’ but will be voting for you in May. Good luck!”

I was shocked to find out that the Tory run New Forest District Council is now spending annually up to £700,000 of taxpayer’s money on putting up people in temporary housing, such as Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Travelodge Hotels.
