Council Calls For Candidates In St Mary’s Seat

polling stationSt Mary’s residents are being offered the chance to stand for Council.

A by-election has been called following the recent death of Cllr Roy Duncan.

There are some restrictions on who can be members and anyone who works for the Council or the school, which has strong connections with the authority, is ineligible.

If you want to stand, you’ll need to get a nomination pack from the Town Hall and return the forms for checking a few days before the deadline of 4pm on Friday 17th October.

This gives would-be candidates a chance to make amendments in case there are any errors.

A seat on Bryher still remains vacant but no election has been called in that ward.

The list of candidates will be published on Monday 20th October and St Mary’s voters get to choose, if there’s more than one candidate, on 13th November.
