It is that time of the year where Kidsgrove will go to the polls on May 6th. This year is a General Election as well as local council elections for Newcastle Borough Council.
We are sad to inform residents that Mary Maxfield is standing down from her role on Newcastle Borough Council to enable her to spend more time with her family. She will be continuing in the role as a Town and County Councillor, however im sure that all residents will agree with the view of this site that she has worked hard for the local area and is one of the few local Councillors who has really made a difference to the area. We have enjoyed reading about what is going on in the local area and I would like to think that communication on a regular basis though the internet with local residents has helped Mary to keep constantly up to date with all the issues concerning local residents.
We are not here to tell you how to vote. You can have your say in the forum boards and view what is being said, if you would like help in making up your mind on May 6th.
The candidates standing in Kidsgrove for the local elections are shown below;
Scott Liam LYCETT, Adrian RHODES, Kyle-Noel TAYLOR, Susan WHITEHURST
*Please note that Kyle-Noel Taylor has been kicked out of the Labour Party after being arrested for assault.
