REGARDING the de-selection of Val Rush.

I was very angry to read of Val being de-selected, she is a good councillor who helped me quiet a few times with problems.

She is a Barking girl, and has lived on the Gascoigne Estate and now lives in Dagenham - so she knows the problems of this area well.

I would like to know where our new proposed councillors live and what they know of the area.

I am afraid like a lot of people I have spoken to, I shall not be voting next time, unless we have somebody standing against them, if I do not vote this will be the first time since I got my vote at 21 that I won't vote I am now 75.

Resident of Gascoigne Ward
