I have no intention of prolonging a pointless argument by correcting the blatant inaccuracies in Mr Mark James’s letter last week but may I just thank the very many people who have taken the trouble to telephone, write or stop me in the street to express their appreciation and support over the last few weeks.
Having seen for myself the manner in which councillors who do not toe the line or do as they are told are treated in the council chamber, I have decided that I am far too old to be spoken to like a recalcitrant schoolchild and would like to state here that I will therefore most definitely not be accepting Mr James’s invitation to stand for the council at the May elections.
I want to be able to continue freely to voice my opinions which seem to accord with very many other Carmarthen residents (however much that annoys the powers-that-be) and which is more than most councillors appear able to do.
(Mrs) Lesley Williams
