Stan Pajak, the Liberal Democrat Council group leader has been a councillor for Eastcott for 31 years with the simple policy of keeping in touch with residents and getting things done not just at election time but throughout the year. It’s a formula that appears to work and Stan is keen to continue, whether it’s taking direct action to remove fly tipped rubbish or speaking out on the Council. A keen community champion Stan has also been a big fund raiser for local charities such as Dial A Ride through his sponsored marathon runs. Born in Swindon and living in the town throughout his life he has no hesitation in stating that promoting our town and getting the best deal for the residents he represents are part of his DNA. Amid the horrifying damaging cuts to council services this year apparently Stan alone turned down receiving the 1% rise to councillor allowances.
