Young councillor: I'm staying so I can stand

Southend Standard: Young councillor: I'm staying so I can stand Young councillor: I'm staying so I can stand

CASTLE Point’s youngest councillor says he plans to stay in the borough to fight for his seat in the next election.

Tory Andrew Sheldon, 25, who represents St Mary’s ward in Benfleet, is still living with his mother and sister, while saving for a deposit to buy a house.

Mr Sheldon had been due to move outside the borough with his family – something which would have prevented him from standing again in May’s borough council elections.

However, he said this week he would be looking for a place to rent in the borough, so he can defend his St Mary’s ward seat on May 22.

Mr Sheldon said: “It was the issue of the Local Plan that did it. My electors know me as a Local Plan campaigner and as the plan is due to come to the crunch next year, I found myself thinking I couldn’t really leave now.”

So are you going to buy a house in the Borough or move after the elections? If it is the latter then you are flaunting the very principle of the rule that you live in the Borough you are elected to represent. Then principle and politics seldom go hand in hand.

At least he has aspirations, which is more than you.

Lots of people stay with parents these days because it's expensive to buy a house but if you were to actually READ the story you will see he is saving for a place anyway.

Trouble is with your sort, you never bother to read anything, don't care about anything and are only here to have a pop at people who are intellectually superior to you.

Anyone with an IQ of a peach pit wouldn't have anything to do with Gandy.
Her gene pool should have been cleared out years ago.

Nope, didn't read your tripe. You are far beneath my level of intelligence.

I just like the fact that what I say winds you right up doesn't it.

Isn't it time for you to go and get your botox levels refilled.

With added bile this time, not that you need it, you are poisonous enough as it is.

You are in no uncertain terms, quite ready for the Nuthouse aren't you?

Now run along and take your medication dear, your jealousy is showing through.

Just because I am articulate and you are a bit deficient. Something lacking eh?

You know nothing about me or my life so I assume you are just upset because what I say is the truth and you lefties can't bear the truth.

As for your insults. It tells us more about you than it does about me.

Nice try.

But I'm not going away, not as long as I know you get so wild that you have to hurl insults.

Shows you've lost the argument from the off. And shows lack of moral fibre.

Did you stay and read this to the end?

Good girl. You might learn something.

Dear me, there are some hysterical harpies around here these days

;D
