Joint statement from the Leaders of the Labour, Plaid Cymru and the Independent groups of Caerphilly County Borough Council.
Posted on : 14 Jan 2022
Cllr Philippa Marsden, Cllr Kevin Etheridge and Cllr Colin Mann
Unfortunately, we are seeing an increasing number of councillors and candidates being subjected to abuse, threats and intimidation.
As well as being totally unacceptable, this behaviour undermines the principles of free speech, democratic engagement and debate.
We endeavour to treat everyone with courtesy, kindness and respect and, as Leaders of our respective political groups, we stand together to call for an end to abuse, intimidation and harassment of any kind.
This is particularly relevant as we enter the key period in the run up to the local government elections in May.
