I agree with Cllr Thomas

I MUST write to emphatically agree with Councillor Herbie Thomas. Newport city has been systematically mismanaged by councillors of all political persuasions. Through this economic recession car parking should have been free, reduced rates for traders in the city centre. More emphasis on attracting new shops, not fast-food outlets. The Valleys rail link has been fought for by the AMs who represent the Newport area and they should be ashamed.

Who would have thought that a former professional footballer, manager and now television pundit would have so much of an interest in Newport. Nice one, John!

I remember he opened a sports shop near John Frost square in the early 1990's. The town obviously made an impression on him.

What is it you are agreeing with ?

Cllr Thomas is elected to champion the city not slate it ...and support the people of the city, including the current town centre traders.

He is a paid councillor so he as much as anyone is responsible for the city centre. He has put forward no ideas or proposal. If all he can offer is criticism then we don't need to pay him as a councillor to do that. Resign and let someone with some ideas have a go !
