Councillor Sonya Ward has spoken out about criticisms made about Mansfield District Council in a commentary article published in last week’s Mansfield Chad.
“Our focus on a daily basis is on the communities we serve, not the council chamber.
“However, there is a difference between constructive discussion and bickering.
“People elect us hoping we will fight for them, for their communities, for their environment, and for the future of our district.
“They do not elect us because they hope we will engage in petty squabbles.
“We recognise that and are glad the Chad has opened up this debate.
“It is time to stop petty arguments, point scoring and personal attacks from obscuring the very real issues Mansfield and District faces.”
