In her latest blog post she said: “Another campaign that has been running for some time is What Matters to You?

“We have been highlighting much of the work that the county council does over the last few months to make residents aware of the sheer scale of services that we deliver across West Sussex.

“Why are we doing this? Well, as you know, money is really tight for us at WSCC and it is going to become tighter –and in the autumn we will start preparing for next year’s budget – so it is really important to me to hear your views and that is what our What Matters to You? campaign is all about.

“We haven’t done many of these live question and answer sessions over Twitter before so it’s all a bit new. However, I’m very much looking forward to Thursday and hope lots of people engage with the idea and send in lots of questions.”
