By-election in Jaba-land!

There will be a by-election in the Tupsley Ward on 1 December; nominations for the election of councillors for the Tupsley ward at both Herefordshire District and Hereford City Council level closed today. Both seats were previously held by George Hyde, who sadly died recently. Tupsley Ward covers a significant section of St James and Bartonsham with the remainder covered by Central Ward.

These are two separate seats for two different councils, but there is nothing to stop the same person being elected to both positions! For the Herefordshire Council seat there are a total of 5 candidates - Conservative, Liberal Democrat, Labour and two Independents. For the City Council seat this is reduced by one Independent.

Successfully elected candidates will hold their seat until the next regular elections take place in May 2007, when all seats become vacant again and new elections held.
