Kidsgrove By Election Candidates Announced

Kidsgrove By ElectionKidsgrove residents will no doubt be getting confused at what is happening with elections in the local area this year. It appears that as a result of Kyle-Noel Taylor being forced to resign his position of councillor, Kidsgrove will have a Newcastle Borough Council By Election on the 10th of May.

This is one week after the main elections have taken place, which is sure to cause additional confusion. If Kidsgrove residents decide to ask for a Kidsgrove Town Council election to fill the void in the seat Kyle-Noel Taylor has left here then this will be another election for the Kidsgrove Ward. If residents wish to demand an election then they need to make this request to Newcastle Borough Council before the end of the month, otherwise Kidsgrove Town Council will co-opt someone on to the council to fill the void.

The candidates standing in this Kidsgrove By Election are:

  • Phil Crank – Lib Dem
  • Linda Harold – Conservative
  • Terry Turner – Labour
  • Claire Vodrey – TUSAC
