Only Conservative County Councillors will be able to vote for their new leader to replace Jeremy Pembroke who resigned last week, but it is an election of great importance to everyone in Suffolk.
So I hope the candidates will make clear and public statements about their approach to the job, rather than speak in code understandable only to insiders.
We are told by the East Anglian Daily Times that Guy McGregor is seen as the “third candidate” who could be the compromise choice. It seems that Colin Noble is the carry on as we have been doing candidate, while Mark Bee represents something else and has been said to be the “outsider” who would bring change in the way the Conservative administration works.
Mr Noble, according to the EADT believes there is no problem with the New Strategic Direction, but it has not been explained well.
I will happily carry statements of 250 words from any, or preferably all, the candidates. Please use the contact page to let me know.
