Some basic information about the election

I'm Mark Ellis and I live in Redruth. We're just about to have elections for Cornwall Council Unitary authority. Traditionally turn out for local elections is low but the decisions Councillors make affect us all. e.g Planning, Council Tax, parking charges, Social Services, stadium for Cornwall, Leisure Centres etc.

As I live in Redruth (Redruth South Division) I wanted to find out about the candidates and what the issues are but found that the information is not all in one place. This blog is my attempt to bring the information together. I'm not a political expert and will try to present information in an unbiased manner so that voters can read it and make their own minds up.

I'll be putting some information up here that is already in the public domain and am hoping to put some questions to the candidates and post their answers. 

Any comments or suggestions welcomed!

Here is some basic info about Redruth South, what happened at the last election in 2009 and who the candidates are this time
