ANYONE WHO witnessed Terry Piccolo receive a civic award a few months ago for his services to the community, cannot have failed to be moved by his passion for the community.
He is the quintessential bastion and bedrock of the community with years of community work and leadership.
So it seems a logical step that Mr Piccolo takes the next logical step and has put his name forward for the council elections on May 3rd for the ward of Stanford-le-Hope West.
We spoke to Terry on Tuesday afternoon as he mingled with the crowds at the very busy Hardie Park easter gathering and asked him why he was standing and what type of councillor he would be.
The full list of candidates will be published by Thurrock Council later this week.
