On May 6th, as well as a General Election, there will be elections for Rochford District Council which elects a third of its Council seats every three years with a break in the fourth year. Councillors all serve a four-year term.
At the moment Hullbridge has three Conservative Councillors and as the one up for re-election is standing down, whatever happens there will be a new face at the Council on May 7th.
Rochford District Council has 39 Members. 33 are Conservatives, 5 are Liberal Democrats and one is Rochford District Residence (Independent).
I belive local elections should be fought on and about local issues and like anything in Government, local or otherwise, such an imbalance as exits on Rochford District is not healthy for Democracy or the people the Councilors are supposed to serve.
