Four years ago, I was privileged and honoured to be voted in as the first Independent Councillor for Welwyn West. I have enjoyed the challenge of standing up for the community and solving the many problems raised by local residents.
I have achieved a great deal during my term of office (most of which is documented on this website) and I am overwhelmed and grateful for the support I have received from local residents.
There are important outstanding issues that compel me to stand again for re-election in May 2016 and I hope that voters will put their faith in me once again.
I believe I have proved that, with dedication and perseverance, an Independent Councillor can achieve a lot. I am not restricted by party allegiance and am free to always act in the very best interest of my ward and its constituents. During my term of office this has been really beneficial on several issues and is something only an Independent Councillor can offer.
Issues over parking prompted me to stand for election, so it will be no surprise that I will be monitoring any parking proposals for Welwyn by WHBC. It is highly likely that there will be future attempts to implement changes to parking that would be financially beneficial to the council, even if unhelpful or unwelcome to the community and businesses.
I currently hold a Surgery on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10.00am to 10.45am in St Mary’s Church House. The next ones are on 19th March and 16th April. I would welcome seeing any residents who may wish to raise local issues with me, or just pop in to say ‘hello’.
Please bookmark this page and check back here for regular updates about local issues, and what I’m doing to support the residents of our beautiful and historic village.
Please email me at email@example.com to join my email list so that I can keep you informed quickly and effectively on any urgent matters that may affect residents. Alternatively sign up in the box on the right.
My intention is to make this site a useful resource for Welwyn residents, containing links and articles regarding local matters. Most importantly it will keep Welwyn residents informed about what I’m doing as your first Independent Councillor. As you may have already read in the Welwyn & Hatfield Times, my voice as a representative of our village may struggle to be heard, but rest assured, be heard it will!
Thank you for your support.
Cllr Sandra Kyriakides
