BEING a town councillor and resident in Monmouthshire, I must say I am disgusted with the way Monmouthshire County Council treats us all.

We pay extortionate rates of council tax so we can have the privilege of our services being cut.

And then Mon CC helps set up organisations made up of volunteers, who only want the best for their community, and then report to a board made up of police officials, health services and, surprise surprise, Mon CC for the final say.

Maybe if the county council didn’t get our towns and streets and businesses in such a state, we wouldn’t have the need for people to give up their time and become Mon CC puppets.
