Kidsgrove and Butt Lane Local Election Candidates

Kidsgrove ElectionsKidsgrove and Butt Lane residents have no doubt been waiting with great excitement at the release of the candidates standing for election at the forthcoming Newcastle Borough Council elections.

In both Kidsgrove and Butt Lane Labour will be defending both seats with candidates Terry Turner and Kyle Robinson respectively. The Kidsgrove Labour team must be confident of success again, given that currently the party holds all of the seats from this area on Newcastle Borough Council.

It does appear that the main threat this year will come from UKIP, who could cause some large upsets both locally and nationally attracting the vote of many people who feel let down and fed up by the actions of the main political parties. Whether this will movement will play out in the local area is unknown in what is a very strong Labour voting area.

A full list of local candidates is listed below;

Becky Carter     TUSAC

Bernie Frost     UKIP

James Ikin      Lib Dem

Sadly if you are not living in either the Kidsgrove or Butt Lane wards then you will not have a local election for Newcastle Borough Council this time, however you will still have a vote for the European Elections.
