Last year Keith Gibbs (UKIP) beat John Flack (Conservative) in the County Council election for Rayleigh South.
They are both standing for election tomorrow.
Even though Keith Gibbs is already a County Councillor for Rayleigh South, and so has to deal with Rayleigh’s highways, education , social services issues etc, he is standing for the District Council in Hawkwell North. Which is pretty odd, and it’s hard to see how it can help his present constituents in Rayleigh.
Meanwhile John Flack is on the Conservative list for the European elections..
