    Hi James

    I agree we need a wider age range of people standing as Councillors. Though it’s easy to understand why we have so many Councillors who are 60 plus in age. If you are still working and bringing up a family, somethings need to be prioritised, and for most of us, family and their well-being is the priority. To be a full time Councillor and do the job properly is extremely time consuming, requiring personal sacrifices, that’s why those Councillors who are 60 plus and are nearing retirement or retired are able to give the dedication needed, which their younger counterparts will never be able to give.
