A corrrespondent has pointed out that there's nowhere on the blog where issues can be raised publicly with me, unless I've happened to blog on them.
Unfortunately, that's the nature of blogger, and unless/until I change to a fancier format, there's no easy way to solve the problem. Of course, I can be emailed at any time via email@example.com or by phone on 07960 247554.
As an experiment, however, once a week I'll put up an "Ask Nick" post, which people can use to raise general or specific issues which aren't on the blog via the comments, whether that's to do with my work as a ward councillor in Haughton West or as a cabinet member.
The only rule is: if you want me to take an issue up, you must leave your name and preferably contact details. Let's see how it goes.
