Ask the Leader – Join in a live Q&A on Tuesday 22 May

West Sussex County Council Leader Louise Goldsmith will be holding a live Q&A session on Twitter next Tuesday 22 May.


Have you got a burning question to ask the Leader of West Sussex County Council?

Louise Goldsmith is putting herself in the hot seat on social media to make sure residents know how and what their council tax is being spent on.

Mrs Goldsmith will be holding a live question and answer session on Twitter this coming Tuesday 22 May.

Hosted on WSCC’s Twitter page (@WSCCNews), the Leader will be taking questions from 4.30pm until 5.30pm.

Residents are invited to send in questions beforehand, either by posting on the county council’s Facebook page or via Twitter using the hashtag #AskTheLeader.

They can also join in on Tuesday by following @WSCCNews and tweeting directly.

This Q&A is part of the ‘What Matters To You’ survey, currently open until Monday 16 July, where residents are asked to give their views on the priorities outlined in the West Sussex Plan.

The survey takes eight to ten minutes to complete and also asks for your opinion on Council Tax levels. By taking part you can enter a free prize draw to win a £500 donation for a West Sussex-based registered charity of your choice.

Louise said: “I am privileged to be able to lead West Sussex County Council and I do that on your behalf. I am passionate about making sure West Sussex continues to be a place we are all proud to live in, work and visit. A key part of that is making sure I hear from everyone in the county. We launched our survey, What Matters To You, last month, where we are asking for your views on the services we run and our priorities. This online Q&A is another part of that.

“So we need to hear what you have to say and what really does matter to you. I want us to get a real conversation going so send in plenty of questions – I’ll be ready and waiting!”
