4Rutland - Campaigning for better government in the county

4Rutland - a group set up by three Independent councillors - now has a website:
4Rutland was formed as a response to concerns about risks posed by local Councillors who may put party political allegiance before the needs of people who live and work in Rutland. 
There is a concern that Full Council Meetings on major issues are brief, raising suspicions that decisions may be pre-determined. The Scrutiny process is minimal. Well qualified Councillors are side-lined, with little or no influence in debates that could be about spending £Millions of public money. With such a small Council this cannot be good for Rutland and the people we serve in these difficult times.
The councillors say they will use the site to:
  • Share our thoughts and concerns
  • Keep you informed of current issues at the Council
  • List meetings you might wish to attend
  • Provide internet links to a selection of interesting and helpful resources
With thanks to Martin Brookes, whose own blog was blocked by Rutland Council.
