Letter: Brickbats should be left to the nationals

I have purchased the Chad for over 50 years and, in that time, noted many changes.

I have always believed that your newspaper should focus on local issues, as it always has, but recently the mayor, Andy Abrahams, has written articles damning the Government, probably with some justification.

Nevertheless, I believe that the Chad and Mr Abrahams should concentrate on ways to benefit Mansfield and the surrounding area and leave brickbats against Mr Johnson to national newspapers such as the Guardian.
