Many Conservative and non-Conservative party members have questioned the fairness & transparency of the recent Abingdon Ward Selection process.
Seems pretty obvious to many people that the Party rigged the short list of prospective candidates put forward to a recent selection meeting
Only one local candidate was chosen against the advice of many residents and a very poor selection on offer.
The rest of candidates had little or no interest in the area I have lived in for many years. Plenty of people unhappy in private and less private angry comments, but so far no answers.
Officers of any political association should listen to the residents and local committee members.
They should not make important decisions behind closed doors
Why were those chairing the meeting still refusing to answer the concerns of the local residents who were not allowed to speak about it? This seems like the old “nasty party” ways…
