Let’s have the truth

I AM shocked to read the letter from Alan Rice, leader of Worthing Liberal Democrats, on page 20 of last week’s Herald (January 13).

Unlike Mr Rice and quite a few other Worthing councillors, I have lived in Worthing all of my life.

To see an elected representative of our town refer to it as “grim” is disgraceful.

We need to celebrate our wonderful Worthing with all its fine features.

The seafront is shaping up so well, with people flocking to the promenade.

What we don’t need are local councillors quite happy to run our town down to score a few political points.

Perhaps it is time for some independent councillors?

Shame on you, Mr Rice.
