This campaign is to ensure that elected politicians are not merely by standers but genuine participants in the decision making process for this great City.

As an ex-councillor, under the current 'strong leader and cabinet's system, I fully support the proposal to move to a modernized committee system. Power is in too few hands.A new committee system must be linked strongly to local areas, and thus local communities.

it's so important that we value the ideas and inputs of everybody rather than making decisions for us all in small exclusive huddles. I want my councillor of whatever party to be representing their constituents whoever is the majority group in SCC

Sheffield council is a total anachronism to democracy.The "elite" Corp are a corrupt group of self centred, opinionated totalitarian people. They have no idea how to run a democratic council, and they should all resign.That also applies to the majority of the council who seem to have no balls at all!

Thanks for working towards greater collaborative working. It's so important especially as we need all councillors fully involved in tackling the climate and ecological emergency.

This is a very important cause, completely independent of whatever political party anyone may support - if you want your voice to count for anything, vote to improve Sheffield City Council and the way it operates.

Democracy at its best! Fully support your efforts to make your voices heard.. perhaps you could take on Westminster next! 😁🌹🌹🌹

It has been an privilege to have lived in Sheffield for over 40 years. This Council has never been as good as the people: hierarchical, unable to consult or collaborate, or deal competently with service delivery needs, esp. those who need a break. We need to break that with real democracy.
