March Town 'Eastwood' By-Election 16 January 2020

31 December 2019

Andrew Crawford Eastwood Candidate

During November 2019, the incumbent councillor for March Town Eastwood Ward resigned their post leaving a seat vacant on March Town Council.

A minimum of 10 electors from the ward were required to request that a by-election takes place. Door knocking in the local ward revealed that there were enough voters in favour of a by-election for it to go ahead.

This will to take place on 16 January 2020.

Our Green Party Candidate is standing on a platform of:

  • Cleaner air
  • Safer roads
  • 20mph speed limits
  • Less traffic
  • More pedestrianisation
  • Safer cycling

The Green Party won two out of the twelve March Town Council seats in the May 2019 local elections. With this by-election we could bring that number to three, which would mean that the Green Party would make up 25% of the total Town Council. This would put a strong green influence on council decisions.
