It is of great concern to many residents of Newton Abbot that Eve Barisic the Conservative Devon County Councillor 'represents' her ward of Newton Abbot North whilst living 150 miles away in Roscoff, Northern France.
Of equal concern is the fact that the people of her ward are failing to be adequately represented. Ms Barisic is estimated to not be present at half of all meetings she should attend; yet pockets over £10,000 in various allowances during the process.
We are therefore asking you to sign our petition to show Devon County Council that Newton Abbot North deserves someone who concerns themselves with local issues and truly represents them rather than an expat who turns up only to claim their allowances.
