In the coming days the returning officer from all council's will release the names of those standing in the elections. In Wigan we have obviously the General Election, the Local elections - this is a 3rd of the Council - which is 25 seats, and then we have Parish Elections too for Shevington and Haigh. Just these two areas have these additional Councils.
I am please to announce all our candidates for the Elections. These are:-
Standish with Langtree Ward - Cllr George Fairhurst
Lowton and Golborne Independents
Wigan Constituency - Cllr Gareth Fairhurst
Shevington Parish Elections
Cllr Angie Bland
Cllr Ken Shaw
Cllr Debbie Fairhurst
Cllr Gareth Fairhurst
Why are we not fielding a candidate in Shevington in the Local Elections?
At last year's local Election in Shevington we cam e 2nd and just missed out with only 200 votes. Ukip did equally as well and it seemed that Labour liked the idea that UKIP split our vote and allowed them in. With this year being a General Election year we have decided to not stand just this year and this will now create a stronger voice for an Anti Labour Vote. Also as a party it is important that we retain the Parish Council seats and gain the additional 2 seats as this will be a bigger importance for the people of Shevington. We will be back next year regardless of the result. So please support our candidates in the parish Elections, where you have 3 votes. Vote for all Shevington Independents . If we get the 5 or more Cllrs we promise to deliver the referendum to give you a choice of reducing you Council Tax. The only Party to promise this.
