Petition to Stop the Strategic Partnership for Shared Services
With the Cabinet arrogance of ignoring the will of the elected majority of Cornwall Council, I and my fellow motion supporters have created a Petition. These are Andrew Long, Jude Robinson, Geoff Brown, Graham Walker (and me). The Cabinet might think it can ignore the majority of elected councillors, but will it dare to ignore the will of the people?
The Petition can be found HERE. I will also make paper copies available to anyone who wishes to collect signatures. If you would like a paper copy drop me an email and I will send you one. Or contact the other supporters who also have copies. As with most things, there are rules to the Petition. These are; you have to be a resident of Cornwall, or you are in full-time education, or you work in Cornwall. There is no age restriction.
The Petition will remain open until December 3rd, or if enough signatures are gathered before, it will be submitted. As for the numbers we wish for, well that is simple. We want as many as humanly possible. But to give an indication where the Petition will go after submission, you need 1000 signatures for it to go to the relevant scrutiny committee and 5000 to go to the full council. However, I would like 1000’s, as that will show the ten on the Cabinet the feeling of the people.
If you really care about the future of Cornwall and the services Cornwall Council provides, then please sign the Petition. Just sign the Petition once, as Cornwall Council do check all the signatures are legal! If you want a paper copy of the Petition, drop me an email and I will sent you it.
