Sunderland Council needs to get its priorities right

I see Sunderland Council is trying to con voters again by saying they are going to try for the Commonwealth Games as the local elections are coming round.

They need to concentrate on tidying the city up – streets are full of weeds and certain second-hand shops on Hylton Road blocking the pavement with goods which makes the street look like Steptoe’s back yard.

They need to get their priorities right and start looking after this city, take less expenses and employ enforcement officers to keep the city clean and tidy.
