Dear Mr Thomson..

With respect, there are very few of us Residents who are going to attend Area Board Meetings to attempt to have our say given that you and your Cons-Cabinet have ALREADY spent out taxes on what YOU want politically rather than for the County's NEEDS and Entitlements ?...

Area Board Meetings cost Residents and...whilst you put on your best "bib and tucker to attend", there are Residents in Wiltshire who are suffering because you as a Conservative Council put yourself BEFORE the Needs of those of us who ACTUALLY pay your Allowances.....

We no longer want to "discuss proposals"....we want and have a Democratic Right to answers as to how and why you have spent Funding on "political other things".....
As Residents and tax payers or not, we want and have a Right to know WHY you place your own Allowance Increase above and beyond the NEEDS of Resident tax payers in Wiltshire ??....
