Kidsgrove Town Council currently has a vacancy for a councillor to represent Kidsgrove. This is very much a role which you do for the love of making a difference to Kidsgrove. This vacancy has come about as a result of former Labour Kidsgrove Councillor Kyle-Noel Taylor’s conviction and custodial sentence.
The residents of Kidsgrove now have the choice to decide if they want an election to decide who takes the seat on Kidsgrove Town Council. If Kidsgrove residents don’t call an election then it will be up to the existing members of Kidsgrove Town Council to co-opt someone onto the town council. Given that this decision is made by the council, then it is highly likely that the ruling Labour Party will decide the election.
Do you trust current Kidsgrove Town Councillors, like Margaret Astle who has brought shame on Kidsgrove Town Council with her unofficial website to make this choice in the best interests of Kidsgrove?
If not, then you should request an election. You simply have to write / email a request of an election to Newcastle Borough Council. You need to address any letter or email for the attention of J Sellgren. This needs to be done as soon as possible, before the end of this month.
