Letter: Poor turnout as town selects two new councillors

Poor turnout for election of two new councillors to Pocklington Town Council.
Poor turnout for election of two new councillors to Pocklington Town Council.

While I am pleased that two independent councillors were elected to Pocklington Town Council, since I don’t think local government is the place for party politics, I was very disappointed at the low elector turnout (17%).

All big councils like ERYC are not truly democratic.

Regrettably this is true for all big councils regardless of party.
