Everyone who follows our blog will know by now that until recently I was an active member of the Labour Party. I resigned from the party because I was not happy with the direction that the Labour Elected Mayor was taking our city and also that no one from within the party would go public and distance the party from the actions of what I feel was a Mayor working on a West Midlands Labour Party agenda rather than a Stoke Labour Party agenda.
Regulars will also be aware of my total support for the three Longton North Councillors Mark Davis, Tom Reynolds & Denver Tolley. These guys work as hard as any councillor I've seen, in their ward.
They have worked on anti social behaviour and to improve facilities in the Longton North area. They attend countless meetings to try and get the best for their electorate.
These guy's know that Longton Town Centre isn't the most attractive and they have been instrumental in the work done to get Longton a much needed face lift.
Key to this is the railway bridge over the King Street entrance/exit to the town.
It's fair to say it is in dire need to refurbishment and there is an old saying about "painting the Servern Bridge" well let me tell you, the Severn Bridge could have been repainted a bloody million times since the last coat of paint went on Longton Railway Bridge.
The three councillors have started a campaign and a petition, to get this bridge repainted and I for one will be signing it! Have a look at this video, whilst I accept that these two aren't the best looking of men, nor are they natural TV presenters for that matter! They send a very clear message and one that deserves support..........
