On the 22nd May 2014 we will all go to the ballot box (unless you’ve already postal voted!) to vote in the local council elections. For the first time 1st 4 Kirkby has candidates standing in all 6 Kirkby wards.
Some of our candidates have stood in previous elections, whilst others are standing for the first time. All 6 candidates are united by a passion for making Kirkby a better place to live and work:
Tony Barton – Cherryfield Ward
Matt Donnelly – Park Ward
Brian Johns – Whitefield Ward
Wesley Hayden – Shevington Ward
Helen Moss – Northwood Ward
Geraldine Robertson – Kirkby Central Ward
If you’re not sure which ward you live in, check out our electoral ward map.
Are you registered to vote? If you haven’t registered you must do so by 6th May to be eligible to vote. Either go online to AboutMyVote or call the hotline on 0800 4320 712.
Your vote, however you use it, can make a real difference. At the last contested election in each ward, the turnout was either 25% or lower. That means 3 out of every 4 people who were registered to vote, didn’t do so. If even 1 out of each of those 3 decided to vote the outcome of each election could have been completely different!
Find out about our candidates through the links above and get in touch through the details on our candidates page. If you like what you see, use your vote on 22nd May (or your postal vote beforehand) and vote for change with 1st 4 Kirkby.
