Fix the Potholes! More money on basic services and less on spin doctors

The County Council spends £5 million a year on press and PR but cannot fix our roads and footpaths or protect vulnerable children. Taxpayers' money needs to be spent on more services for the benefit of local people and less on spin and publicity that benefits Conservative councillors.
