In less than five weeks on Thursday 5th May everywhere people will be asked to make their choice for Police and Crime Commissioner. Some people will vote twice that day with Plymouth City Council holding local elections. Around six weeks later everyone will be called back to the ballot box again to choose whether to stay in or leave the European Union yet many, many people will not feel moved to vote. Why is this?
Janet Wise Labour and Co-operative Council Candidate for Plympton Erle is organising a meeting on 7th April at 3.30pm and is delighted that the owners of the relatively new independent café Finla, Michael and Deanna in St Stephen’s Place in Plympton, have agreed to host the meeting.
Ms Wise said “This is the fourth in a series of meetings I am running in Plympton to meet with and hear the views of Plympton residents. Voting is important yet many people choose not to vote. I would like to know why. I am particularly keen to hear from reluctant, future and first time voters to discuss what they feel about our democracy. This is not a Party political meeting but a chance for anyone who feels that voting is a waste of time to come and hear from others who are hopefully passionate about voting”.
Mr Michael Pendlebury from Finla said “I’m happy to host this meeting because we want to be at the heart of the community here in Plympton and cafes are a great place to meet up and chat.”
If you are planning to come along to this meeting please book with Janet Wise on 01752 283953 by 12 noon on Tuesday 5th April. (Please note the venue and time of this meeting was previously Plympton Library at 5.30pm – sorry for any inconvenience)
