Do you agree with the idea of more councillors at Hartlepool Civic Centre?

I am in the Victoria ward and I’m sure we could spare two.

The town is going downhill – no support in the area.

I am sure reducing councillors down to 11 would save the town a considerable amount of money.

Then they would have to pull their weight, and we would see what we are getting for our money.

At present, very little.
