First of a series of analyses of work that Cllrs do (or not!) in advance of the elections in May
Why elect people who won't work hard for you?
As Cllrs we can ask questions of the Council or housing associations, these are called Members Enquiry (ME). Most ME's are done on behalf of residents, helping them get information, help or answers.
The table below is just of the Cllrs standing for election again showing Members Enquiries from May 2018 to February 2022
From lowest Abdul Ullah to best Rabina Khan.
The detailed backup is in this Excel file here, from an ME I asked the Council.
48 Cllrs in total as 3 Cllrs started after the May 2018 elections due to a resignation, a Councillor being jailed, or sadly a Councillor passing away.
So this is a crude measure of who does work on behalf of residents
This is not perfect record of work as won't include answering questions, Councillor surgery sessions etc but should be a guide as to who to vote for this May
Another useful measure is how many LYN reports they have submitted
This is a picture of my reports as an example but there is no central list by Cllr
Another key measure is who attends most Council meetings will do later & then do combined analysis
