Cllr Doyle has been telling KCLR that he’s looking forward to the campaign and a hectic 12 months, “It’s going to be busy, I have no doubt, and throw in the local elections too on top of that. It’ll be all go and it’ll be very interesting. To be honest, it’s the one part of politics that I really enjoy – the canvassing part, going around and knocking on doors. So I’ll have plenty to do.”
