Local government and local democracy are extremely important in Cornwall. Cornwall Council and town and parish councils make many decisions that have a huge impact on the day to day life of the people of Cornwall.
In 2009, following the local elections in Cornwall, Mebyon Kernow – The Party for Cornwall, had seven seats on Cornwall Council or Town/Parish Councils across the Camborne district.
Over the last two years, after many hard fought by-election election campaigns, this number has increased dramatically and now stands at thirteen – and we would very much like to increase this number further.
There are many people out in the local community who have a great passion for the good of Cornwall – please come and help us make Cornwall a better place to live, work and enjoy family life. Local councils need people who are able to commit time and energy to the community to make continuous improvements.
I would ask how many people would like to make a difference to public life and believe that Cornwall can and should get a better deal. Anyone who does should come and join us.
