HOTSEAT: Send us your questions for the Council Leader

First published in News
Last updated

SWINDON Council leader David Renard will be in the Hotseat later this month.

Coun Renard, who also represents the Haydon Wick ward, will be answering all your burning questions.

Coun Renard was named as the successor to Coun Rod Bluh almost exactly a year ago.

He has previously worked in the travel and tourism industry and then moved into training and development. He was elected for the Haydon Wick ward in 2002, was given the council’s housing portfolio in 2004, taking on extra responsibilities in adult social care and health integration in 2006, before moving over to children’s services in 2010 and becoming the deputy leader in 2012.

When he became council leader last year, Coun Renard said he would continue to use the social networking site Twitter as a way of engaging with voters.

If you have a question for Coun Renard, get in touch. 

Send your questions to newsdesk@swindonadvertiser.co.uk under the heading ‘Hotseat’, or leave your questions below.

Alternatively, post your letters to Hotseat, Swindon Advertiser, Newspaper House, 100 Victoria Road, Swindon, Wiltshire SN1 3BE. You can also send your questions through our Facebook page, or tweet us @swindonadver.

We’ll put your questions to Coun Renard next week and the feature will appear in the Adver on Wednesday. All questions must be sent in by March 22.

Simple question:

Who do the Council think they answer to? I ask as it seems they are impervious to the wishes of their electorate and contemptuous of it (WiFi, Town Centre Development, Green bags etc)

Oh and another:

Does he feel having Eric Pickles as Local Government Minister is a hindrance? I ask as it seems most people who I know who vote Tory are not voting for them again this year because of Pickles' approval of Ridgeway Farm.

Now, I re-posted my earlier observation because it had 'disappeared'. When I posted the comment again it suddenly re-appeared!
