The Politics in the Tron survey asked current councillors to reflect on this term and look ahead to the next.   The mayor and 8 councillors responded answering the ten questions in the survey. Four councillors did not respond.  They are West ward councillors Henry, Tooman, and Taylor and East ward councillor Mallett.

We don’t know why they did not respond.  It could be that they are not planning to stand again at the coming election so saw no need to reply.  They may need reminding that their term of office does not finish until 12 October. Or that they are planning to stand again but did not wish to inform voters of their thoughts and views in this way.

The 5,000 or more voters who supported each of these candidates in 2016 could well be interested in their responses along with voters in the coming election.  It seems a reasonable request.
