Mary Smith’s election will be good for Rye

May 26, 2008

I was very pleased to see that the Campaign for a Democratic Rye had another success at the Rye Town Council by-election last week, with Labour returned in a dismal third place.

The CDR, like the Liberal Democrat Group on Rother District Council is fighting for an Area Committee system, which will devolve power, decision-making, and most importantly, a budget, closer to the people.

Whilst I understand people’s cynicism about political parties, and the commitment of the CDR to be non-party political, I think it is important for people to know that there is a mainstream political party advocating devolution across a range of political issues.  That party is the Liberal Democrats.
