I have now read the subsequent article on the elections which tells us some of the boundaries have been altered, this seems a little unfair in my view.

I asked why someone from Marazion is standing for Helston North purely because I thought one had to live within a three mile boundary of the area that they stand for election in, as that is the rule for town and parish councils. Obviously tha is not the case but that is why I asked with a question mark.

Incidentally whilst I hold an interest in Falmouth I would not consider standing for election in a town which is not my nearest town even if I worked there.

Gill, it is probably Porthleven with Helston West instead of South now because the West division is smaller than South so i suppose it makes sense to combine it with Porthleven, i agree it dosn't seem fair because someone could lose votes from previous areas that maybe thought a councillor was doing a good job in their area and would like to see them voted back in.
I agree with you too about Marazion and Helston, even if someone works in Helston or owns land in Helston which would make them eligble to stand for election in Helston, they will not be in residence for people to come and see them easily if they live in Marazion, why not stand for Penzance, makes me wonder how many meetings they would turn up to as well. You are quite right about the three mile rule for Town and Parish or if they work or own land in the town.
I can't see the point having someone from Marazion when there are plenty of Helston candidates to choose from.

It dosn't matter where people live to have an interest in a place or an opinion but there is a big difference being a councillor, particularly if you are not available locally for your electors. It appears to me by your comment and some of your comments in the past that you have a problem with Gill having an interest in Falmouth, she has no need to justify her interest in Falmouth or anywhere else to people who are small minded enough to think that people should only hold opinions in the area they live in. I could ask you why are you taking an interest in what Gill says on a Helston article, why do you have an interest in Falmouth and Helston.
I suspect democracy4us is an alternative user name.

Thank you meerkats and Tyrone.

In my view, some people misconstrue a simple question and read it as an objection. This article never mentioned Falmouth and neither had I, therefore my interest in Falmouth is irrelevant to this article.
Asking a question, does not in my view constitute an objection. I asked simple questions and Tyrone has answered those questions for me.

In Mullion and Grade Ruan, I personally would like to see Carolyn Rule re elected, she has always worked very hard as a councillor and her attendance rate is very good. She has the time and enthusiasm to fulfil her expected council commitments.

For Porthleven and Helston West
I would like to see Councillor Andrew Wallis re elected, his attendance record is very good as are his achievements at town and county level.

Well no one seems much in a hurry to canvass in Mullion, only had one leaflet from Carolyn Rule so far.

Yes she is fine, I told her to go away and that I was not voting for her :)

She actually works very hard and puts in a massive amount of time in her role as councillor, she knows what she is doing and she has principles and does the right thing.
