Any of the councillors, they've worked so hard for this lovely clean green city planting trees everywhere and putting dustbins in places where there used
the way they've sorted the traffic is amazing, free flowing which makes driving through hereford a breeze!!
People from all around the country are attracted to hereford now with its shopping complex and one visitor even was quoted saying "hereford is such a beautiful place with its lovely shops and so many!! And I've got to say this, your public toilets are so SO CLEAN and modern!!!" And yes I'll be back!!!"
So there you have it, the councillors gets my vote but I don't think councillor Jarvis will be there though as he's going to be busy being the mayor with his side kick next to him Bobby ;-)

Well Said B the B!!

I'm no hero, far from it....but I'm no moaner either!!

I just like to remind folks of the money this council have wasted, whilst potholes still need to be filled, High Town still needs to be maintained, Independent traders still need a break, children's services still need improvement, adult services still need to remain open, and the cabinet still need to remember the meaning of the words "transparency" and "accountability."

Little things like that really!!

I vote for Bobby47. If you could prise him away from the Lugg or the Wye for an afternoon I am sure he'd be the finest ribbon cutter in the whole of this here parish.
He could use the words 'I declare this salty haulk open' and then get trampled in the stampede for the opening day bargains.

Heros not moaners says B the B......I suggest that you go onto the Hereford a voice and read Bobbys post " A 'Hero' amongst us." At the same time visit the post from Dippyhippy relating to the proposed knocking down of the Working Boys Home , neither may not of made the light of day if they had not put their posts in the public domain.
