Why should I take part?
We asked our local politicians this question and this is what they said.
City of Cardiff Councillor, Jonathan Evans told us, “There are three main points to emphasise in this discussion about public services: the need to consult on the council’s priorities; the importance of encouraging people to come forward with creative ideas about how to shape, organise and deliver services; and reflect on how people can best engage with the council in a meaningful way.” He added, “We really do need to work together constructively and cooperatively. This is why I would urge everyone to get involved in the Cardiff Debate.”
Labour parliamentary candidate for Cardiff North, Mari Williams said, “The more people who have their say, the better informed councillors can be in making the difficult decisions that lie ahead. From schools and libraries to pavements and recycling the council need to be clear about what the people of Cardiff want.”
