There were only six nominations for the seven places on Denton Parish Council when nominations closed at noon today.
This means that the Super Six, current councillors, — Liz, Roger, Terry, Peter, Adrian and Annie are returned unopposed and will have the choice of opting for another election to fill the seventh place or co-opting a “willing” volunteer. The latter course seems more likely.
The one current councillor who is not seeking re-election is Eddie Winter who is standing down after many years of excellent service — we thank him and wish him a long and happy retirement.
There will therefore be no PC elections on May 5th but the AV Referendum goes ahead and the District Council seat for the Earsham Ward is contested.
Murray Gray, Liberal Democrats is challenged by Jethro Elsden, Conservative. May the best man win.
