Scott Mann

My name is Scott Mann I am a postman and Cornwall Councillor in Wadebridge and in January I was selected to be the Prospective Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for the 2015 general election. I'm 36 years old, I'm married and have a nine year old daughter. I live in affordable housing in Wadebridge. I am proud to have been born in Cornwall and delighted to have been selected to run for parliament in the area I was born and raised. I am not a career politician, I have worked two jobs since the age of 17 and I understand how difficult it can be trying to raise a family and pay a mortgage in Cornwall.

Council tax freeze means extra £5million for Cornwall

Last Tuesday Conservative Councillors have voted to support a tax freeze at Cornwall Council in line with their group policy.  Conservative Group Leader Fiona Ferguson explained, "We had decided in group that it was a priority to freeze Council tax to protect hard working families in Cornwall from a Council tax hike.  Whilst we submitted a proposal that would have protected front line services it was clear that we just did not have the number of Councillors to get it through.  We were left with two options:  A cabinet proposal to increase Council tax or a Liberal Democrat proposal which froze Council Tax but affected some front line services.  The majority of the Conservative Group backed the Cornish taxpayer and voted for a freeze."
