5 candidates have put their names forward for next month’s by-election for the local council seat of Central Wight.
Back in May of this year Bob Seely was once again elected councillor for Central Wight, but just a month later he was elected MP for the Isle of Wight. Despite initially saying he could carry out both roles, Mr Seely decided to stand down as a local Councillor to focus on his work as the Island’s MP.
Now, candidates from the 5 major parties are battling it out to take the ward on 25th January.
The candidates are:
• Terry Brennan – UKIP
• Steve Hastings – Conservative
• Simon Haytack – Labour
• Daniel James – Green Party
• Nick Stuart – Liberal Demoncrat
The only candidates who live in the area they are standing for is Steve Hastings and Nick Stuart, who both live in Brighstone.
