Election 2022: Labour veteran who does the detail
Elections / Tue 26th Apr 2022 pm30 02:13pm
AT a recent council meeting, it took Toddbrook councillor Tony Edwards around two minutes to ask a supplementary (follow up) questioned. He got heckled but stood his ground.
Cllr Edwards was asking the question on behalf of a 92-year-old resident and wanted to do “right by here” and so if it means it took two minutes, then so be it.
And that is very much the way of Tony Edwards. He is very much a details man and an integral part of the Labour team.
As he is up for re-election, we spoke to cllr Edwards up in the heart of his ward on Tendring Road to discuss why he is defending his seat.
We also spoke to him about a number of issues including the much-maligned Labour adminstration between 2012 and 2021 and whether it is unjustly maligned?
We will be doing a Ward by Ward assessment in the next few days.
