Ever wondered what a Borough Councillor's role entails?

Ever wondered what a Borough Councillor's role entails?
I did! I was elected as a Councillor for the Lynn South & West ward of the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk on 5th May 2011.

A little bit about me:
I have lived in South Lynn for 7 years with my wife and work locally for the Norfolk Primary Care Trust as an IT Manager.

I am a Labour Councillor and whilst the local Labour group made some encouraging gains in the May elections (moving from 4 councillors to 13) we are still very much a minority opposition as the Tories hold 42 of the 64 council seats.

Leaflets all delivered, polling stations open

Finally managed to get the last of my leaflets out at around 9pm last night.

Having put in extra hours at work over the past few days I have been able to confirm that I am able to take Friday off to attend the count.

Will be visiting the polling station at NORA project offices to cast my own votes at around 6pm this evening, other than that it is now in the hands of the electorate as to whether I am successful.
