I am not standing down from council

I would like to inform the residents of Cullercoats Ward that I continue to be their elected ward councillor.

I would ask the person who has been giving misinformation about me standing down to stop.

Residents should ensure that they are giving information to their elected members or ring the council direct.

I will continue to work hard for the residents of Cullercoats Ward and intend to stand for re-election in May 2014.

My ward surgeries continue as usual: first Saturday in each month at Marden Residents’ Association, Bavington Gardens, Cullercoats, 10am – 11am; second Saturday at Cullercoats Community Centre, Belle Vue Terrace, Cullercoats, 10am – 11am.

Coun Ken Barrie

North Tyneside Council
