Could You be Our Next Council Candidate?

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

get involvedThe local Conservative Party is seeking people interested in becoming local council candidates for the May 2016 local council elections in Tamworth Borough.

Local councillors are responsible for local services, such as bin collections, street cleaning, planning decisions, open spaces, play areas, setting council tax, licensing, outdoor events and social housing – alongside many other important local services. Councillors also have a role helping to resolve community issues and providing community leadership.

Being a councillor is a hugely rewarding experience. You get the opportunity to put something back into your community, shaping and changing your area for the better.

The election campaign itself is also a rollercoaster of excitement, something many consider to be a memorable and unique experience.

If you are interested in getting involved and learning how the services in your area are run, putting something back into your local community or you are interested in public service, then this might be an opportunity for you.  Most of the meetings councillors attend are in the evening and many councillors have full time jobs as well.

If you are interested in being considered for a candidacy, would like an application form or would like more information, please contact me on 01827 57156 or e-mail office@tamworthconservatives.co.uk.

Local councillors are ordinary people from every walk of life, so this is something anyone can do. We hope you will consider finding out more about becoming a council candidate.

Christopher Pincher has retained the Tamworth Constituency for the Conservative Party with an increased majority of 11,302.

Speaking in the early hours of Friday morning after the election result had been declared Mr Pincher said, “I would like to thank my agents and all the people who have campaigned for me and with me over the last several months.  There are too many to mention individually, but you all know who you are.

“Can I also thank my fellow candidates for the way they have conducted themselves during this campaign, particularly the Labour candidate, Carol Dean.  Carol has worked hard as a County Councillor for our town and I’m sure she will continue to do so.

“But most of all can I thank the people of Tamworth for reinvesting their trust in me.  Five years ago I made a speech saying it was the honour of my life to serve as Member of Parliament for Tamworth and now, having been re-elected, I will do my utmost to deserve that trust.”

The full results of Thursday’s election in the Tamworth Constituency are below.

Party Candidate Votes Received
Conservative Party Christopher Pincher 23,606

UKIP Jan Higgins 8,727
Liberal Democrat Jenny Pinkett 1,427
