The paper reports that Cllr. Frith has lived in Nettleham since the age of two, spent the last forty-six years as a Parish Councilllor and represented the area at district council level since 1984. The paper reports Cllr. Frith as saying:
"Planning is the biggest issue for the area.At the West Lindsey District Council Civic Dinner, held on Friday 16th April 2010 sources close to senior councillors have said there was considerable rumour and speculation that that Cllr. Frith may not serve the full four year term if elected, and retire after a year.
"A lot of residents feel now we have reached a point where, with traffic problems in the village, we have got to capacity.
"Giles has been putting himself around a lot and the campaign is hotting up a bit I'm hoping I will be re-elected, but who can tell?"
The paper describe Conservative Candidate and recently re-elected Nettleham Parish Councillor, Giles McNeill, as a long-term Nettleham resident - having lived in the village for two decades. He said:
"I feel I can make a positive difference to Nettleham in four years.Commenting separately on the rumour regarding Cllr. Frith not serving a full term of office Cllr. McNeill said:
"Cllrs. Leaning and Alf are less Nettleham men at West Lindsey and more West Lindsey's men at Nettleham."
"It's time Nettleham started getting fair funding and has a stronger voice in West Lindsey. You can't vote for change in Nettleham by voting Lib Dem as they are the establishment."
"I think it is a matter for Cllr. Frith to answer. I plan to work hard as the Councillor for Grange-de-Lings, Greetwell, Nettleham, North Greetwell and Riseholme, for the full term I am elected for."
