Council boss accused of ignoring Darwen

This Is Lancashire: Council boss accused of ignoring Darwen Council boss accused of ignoring Darwen

COUNCIL leader Kate Hollern has been accused of ignoring Darwen now she is seeking to become MP for Blackburn.

Sudell councillor Paul Browne made the allegation at the full meeting of the council forum.

The Liberal Democrat attacked her over her report to Blackburn with Darwen councillors which led off on the ‘Blackburn is Open’ campaign to boost the town centre.

Coun Browne told her: “Darwen as a place might as well not exist as far as you are concerned, especially since you decided to try to become Blackburn’s Labour MP.

“Do the voters of Blackburn know you actually live in Darwen?

“Darwen Town Council does far more for this town than the borough ever does in terms of grants to groups there.”

Coun Hollern hit back: “If you read my report Paul, there is a big item on Darwen’s Square Meadow just further down. Organiser Harry Blackwell approached the Sudell Liberal Democrat councillors and got nothing done. He came to me and we were glad to help and get the ball rolling on transforming the former sports field.

“The ‘Blackburn is Open’ initiative is about dealing with the problem of empty shops and using them to give opportunities for creative and business-minded young people.

“Many people from Darwen come and shop in Blackburn and this is for the good of the whole borough. It is not the same problem in Darwen where I am delighted to see how well the night-time economy is doing.”

After the meeting Coun Hollern said: “One minute Paul’s saying I’m only bothered about Blackburn, then he’s telling people I live in Darwen. He and the Lib Dems have nothing to say so they make these claims.

“I am the leader of Blackburn with Darwen Council and since Labour took back power, we have done all we can for both towns.”

Coun Browne said: “I, the other Sudell councillor Roy Davies and Darwen Town Council have supported Harry Blackwell over Square Meadow 100 per cent throughout.”

Mr Blackwell was not available for comment.

How dare anyone from Darwen criticise the extremely hard working Blackburn with Darwen Council leader and Wensley Fold councillor Kate Hollern? If she wants to live in Darwen rather than Blackburn then why shouldn’t she? She‘s been doing her very best for nearly twenty odd years to get Blackburn with Darwen out of the doldrums and how could anyone ever criticise her is beyond belief. Just take a look how wonderful Blackburn has become during her period in charge. Little wonder those living within her council patch would want anyone else doing the job as Wensley Fold councillor.

As a councillor for Wesley Fold Kate Hollern has achieved great things while she has been there. Bringing a totally unbiased cultural attitude to the the whole of Blackburn with Darwen. Not to mention the past difficulties concerning street prostitution and drug dealing on her patch now thankfully on it’s way to becoming past history much to her endeavours. You wouldn’t think it to be the same place thanks to Kate Hollern. Also full marks for the obvious improvements that have been made not only Blackburn but to Darwen as well and feel sure that her leader Jack Straw will congratulate her when the time comes. What she has done in her support for him during his long stay can only be congratulated.

Who better could there ever be to take over his Blackburn MP status than Kate Hollern. To be able to see her sorting out those on the oppose side in Parliament will be a delight to see. The whole of Blackburn with Darwen is now living in complete harmony due to the unbiased endevours of the two of them towards bringing the communities of Blackburn with Darwen together as one. Kate Hollern has achieved so much for Blackburn with Darwen and we should be congratulating her rather that criticizing her efforts.

Kate Hollern for MP?

What a wonderful idea!

Darwen Vale High School, Blackburn Rd, DARWEN, Lancashire BB3 0AL. Definitely in DARWEN, not in Blackburn.

In the article, nowhere does it imply that Kate Hollern says it is in Blackburn.
It is the reporter that wrote the headline... read again, try to comprehend, feel foolish and and hone your investigative powers a little more skillfully Hetty.
