Wards To Watch – Hockley Central
Our final ward to watch is Hockley Central, for elections to Hockley Parish Council.
The election here is interesting in two ways.
Firstly, there are 11 candidates standing for 10 places – so everyone gets elected except for the poor person who comes bottom!
And also, nobody is standing as a Conservative candidate this time- most people are standing either as independents, or for the Hockley Residents Association.
Mark Anderson, who some years ago was a Conservative District Councillor, is one of those standing as an independent.
Current Conservative District Councillor Maddocks signed Mark Anderson’s nomination paper.
Mark Anderson has signed the nomination papers of one independent candidate, Veronica Randall, and one HRA candidate, Tim Gleadell.
Tim Gleadell has signed the nomination papers of another independent candidate , Steven Chelmsford, and one HRA canddiate, Lesley Vingoe.
This is all getting very complicated….
