Vauxhall will soon be home to some Little Bow representation.
While rumours of an office for the community have been exaggerated, it doesn’t mean that Vauxhallites won’t get representation.
“As far as Vauxhall is concerned, I’ve reached out to the mayor (Margaret Plumtree),” said David Schneider, Little Bow MLA. “There hasn’t been an office out there of any kind that I’m aware of… but since 1991 or 92, I would say not.”
Schneider’s assistants were out in Vauxhall earlier, to scout locations to use while they are in Vauxhall. While the plan is in its preliminary stages, soon you might be able to reach them in the Vauxhall library, at least once every week or two.
“It’ll depend on how much need there appears to be. I just wanted to make sure there is a presence from an MLA in that area,” said Schneider. “We don’t have anything formal yet, but that’s where we’re headed.”
The MLA’s assistants will be able to take care of most of the concerns brought to them, although if needed, Schneider will make the trip to Vauxhall himself to deal with the issue.
“If they need to see their MLA, we’ll make that happen, but a lot of times, it’s just finding out what’s going on with legislation, or why isn’t this working, or somebody that needs help with an application or something to that effect.”
A new office is set to open in Coaldale on Nov. 1.
