The nominations have now closed for the Town Council by-election on 10th May. There are three candidates for two seats, so there will be a contested election. It is good to see there’s a gender mix, a range of ages and some “homegrown” candidates. Also interesting to see that all three of the candidates’ proposers have experience of serving on the Town Council – the current mayor is Cllr Venning. There should be no shortage of advice!
Hopefully, in the course of the next few weeks, we’ll learn a little about the candidates’ aspirations and how they feel they can make a difference by being elected.
