Letter: Pick leader from south

I HOPE the Horsham district councillors will choose a new council leader who lives in the south of the district for a change.

I have lived in Henfield for 13 years and during that time all the leaders have lived in the north of the district. My Nye and his predecessor Mrs Kitchen represented wards bordering Surrey.

I do not think I am alone in believing that a disproportionate amount of the council’s limited resources are spent in Horsham town and the immediate surrounding area.

There has been the recent outcry over Broadbridge Heath Leisure Centre and the town hall and yet the vocal opponents seem to conveniently forget that the tax payers in the south would also have to contribute to these even though 99 per cent of us would never ever use them.
