Resignation brings Summer By Election

The resignation of Labour County Councillor  Rachel Cooley after only 12 months in office will bring a County Council By Election in St George Division , centred around the Racecourse in Northampton . Prior to Labour's victory last year this area had been represented by Liberal Democrat Councillors for many years. The last one being Sarah Uldall pictured here with fellow campaigner Martin Sawyer.

The  St George Liberal Democrat Focus Team has a record of action for the area going back 30 years and Martin and Sarah and the team are already out meeting people  and dealing with issues such as fly-tipping, overgrown verges and concerns about cuts to council services.

Details of candidates will be published next week and the election is expected  to be on Thursday July 19th.
