DO we have one person from our army of councillors who can convince me that our heavily-taxed ratepayers in Huntingdon are getting value for money?
Once again I read that they have overspent and need to increase our tax again next year. After they have spent millions of pounds on themselves and new office blocks, what have out taxpayers, gained?
I see small blobs of tarmac in the footpaths around town, the drains full of rubbish, and the streets cannot be cleaned because of cars parked on both sides of the roads around town.
In the 1950s Huntingdon was a thriving community, with beautiful green fields, miles of space and peaceful surroundings. Local people have been robbed of everything to fill the pockets of our councillors.

Why spend millions of pounds knocking everything down, just to build another one? It doesn't improve the town, which is now a headsore full of estate agents, cafés and car shops. What has happened to all the entertainment we once had in town - dancing on Saturday nights in the Town Hall, snooker and billiards in the Commemoration Hall, which belonged to our ex-service men and women? They have been taken away by our greedy council.
