Queen Edith’s Labour councillor resigns her seat: by-election set for 13th November

rosettesQueen Edith’s Labour councillor Sue Birtles resigned her city council seat last Tuesday. We do not know the reasons for her standing down after little more than two years as a councillor.

If councillors resign in the spring, their successors can be elected in May at the same time as the annual council election. The timing of Sue’s resignation mean we shall have a by-election so as not to leave people unrepresented until the May 2015 elections.

This will take place on Thursday 13th November.

If you are new in Queen Edith’s and not yet registered to vote, you can do so until 28th October. If you need a postal or proxy vote, the deadline is 29th October. You can register to vote and apply for a postal or proxy vote by contacting the City Council: [email protected]
