MK says “VOTE LOCAL” on 4th May
As campaigning for the local elections enters its final few days, Mebyon Kernow has appealed to voters to focus on local issues when they cast their votes on Thursday 4th May.

In a statement issued today, MK leader Cllr Dick Cole said:

“The decision of Westminster MPs to vote for a General Election in the middle of the local election campaign has shown their disregard for local democracy and the work of councils.

“It is clear that the elections to the unitary authority in Cornwall – and other councils across the UK – are being over-shadowed by what is happening in London.

“But this election is not about Westminster politics or Brexit or who is Prime Minister.

“This a very important local election and it is my hope that voters will ignore the hullaballoo of the General Election and focus on Cornish issues and those local matters which are of significance to their home communities.

“It is also my hope that residents will vote for candidates whose loyalty is to the people of Cornwall and who will always champion the best interests of our local area.”

He added: “In those divisions with Mebyon Kernow candidates, please use your vote to elect MK councillors who will stand up for Cornwall.”
