Bude-Stratton Town Council elections – who’s standing?

Turnouts for local elections tend to be low as many people are sadly not interested in politics, especially at local level, until something controversial arises.  However, the people you elect are the people who make decisions on your behalf – which impact you at a local level. As my old Dad used to say: if you don’t bother voting, you’ve no right to moan – and he had a point.

This year, you have quite a few to choose from for Bude & Stratton Town Council, and the lists have now been published on the Council website. You might want to find out more about the candidates and their beliefs/agendas before casting our vote.

I am happy for any candidate of any persuasion to tell us a little about themselves on Bude & Beyond, to make it easier for local people to access information. However, I have communicated with the Clerk of the Council for advice to clarify the legal position on this.

Incidentally, Bob Willingham has said he will not seek reelection on the Bude-Stratton Town Council as he will contest the newly-created Cornwall Council seat of Stratton, Kilkhampton and Morwenstow following the electoral review of Cornwall Council.
