It really doesn't bode well for Hawkinge

Dear Editor,

Re:Date set for Hawkinge Parish Council poll to fill vacancies

Hopefully, for Hawkinge, commonsense is at last prevailing.

This now gives those with criminal convictions the opportunity to do the decent thing and retire from the Parish Council.

I am not at all certain how a convicted criminal has the audacity to believe that they are a right
and proper person to a) be a councillor and b) continue to sit on a financial committee.

How can the electorate trust such a person?

It also beggars belief that a fellow councillor supported the said criminal.

It really doesn't bode well for Hawkinge, but as I said, hopefully between now and 10th January 2008 commonsense will prevail and the New Year will bring sensible new resolutions.
