LETTER: Councillors should be visible

2016-02-04 06:00

The last time I checked, the role of a councillor was to incorporate the interests of the municipality and those of their constituents, playing a vital role in creating and implementing their community vision and strategic direction. On close observation though, it seems very few of the councillors in our areas meet the above criteria. Councillors need to be more visible in the communities. They need not be only focusing on sitting in their offices. Some people in our communities need to be informed of developments within their surroundings. People are not well informed of what is available in the communities. All because of poor service delivery from our councillors.
