I am trying out online polls as a way of engaging with constituents. My thanks to Stephen Tall for supplying me with the details of where to get free polls. (Stephen - when are you going to do a poll on sexiest member of Lib Dem staff!?)
The poll I am doing is on plans by Gateshead Council to introduce car parking charges at various locations throughout the borough including Whickham (I represent Whickham South and Sunniside ward). All just an experiment but hopefully it will encourage more people to visit our news blog - www.gatesheadnews.blogspot.com.
