Ascension : Ascension Island Council - Public Opinion Poll
Submitted by The Islander (Gavin Yon) 13.04.2006 (Article Archived on 27.04.2006)
A big thank you to all those that have completed opinion polls for us. We will begin to analyse these next week,
those of you who have completed a poll and not given it to an Elected Councillor yet, please do so as soon as possible,
those of you yet to fill in a form, please do so and give it to an Elected Councillor this week.
After you have completed the Poll feel free to add any other thoughts, views or comments regarding right of abode and permission to buy/sell or rent land or property on the back of the form.
The Opinion Poll forms will be kept in confidence by the Elected Councillors and only statistical data will be published as the results of the Poll.
The form itself has come in for some criticism, which is fair enough; all we would say is that we produced it after considerable thought and after obtaining some free advice on the wording. However as with all things done by the Elected Councillors, it was produced in our own time by ourselves as we presumed that the majority of Tax Payers would prefer that we didn’t spend tax payer’s money on hiring a Consultant to produce what would probably turn out to be a similar form.
