    How were we supposed to vote for you in the local elections when you never canvassed our road. We didn’t even receive a leaflet through the door so have no idea what your policies are, gives the impression you weren’t really in the race

    • David Coveney

      Hi – we do try to deliver to every house in targeted wards.

      One big problem is that we have a shortage of helpers who can deliver or canvass. If you’re interested, do let us know.
