THERE have been many letters recently regarding the state of our suburbs, questioning a few areas being cleaned and not others, and whether our councillors take notice of what they see.
Here in Lorraine, our streets are never cleaned, and we have to put up with illegal dumping, litter of all sorts being thrown out of cars and bus travellers messing everywhere at the bus stops, and green areas completely overgrown.
I complained to my councillor four weeks ago about the above concerns, but nothing has been done. I usually get excuses when I complain, but didn't even get that this time!
I'm sure that this same story could be told all over the city, because the whole city is in desperate need of a cleanup, except Walmer where the streets are regularly cleaned and grass areas cut (I agree with J Benji's letter of February 6, "Suburb urgently needs a cleanup".)
Our councillors cannot help but see this as they drive around. If we, the public, can see it, so can they. Why are they not doing anything about it?
Surely they have pride in their suburb and city.
If they don't, then they should not be in such a responsible position.
