Parish Council Elections May 2nd 2019

Those with long memories may recall that I wrote about the last local council elections on April 16th 2015.

I commented along the lines that this was like a blanket of apathy descending on Hertford.

I have been involved in Hertford since 2000 and if you read my previous posts (see right) you will know how frustrated I have become over the lack of any action being taken to breathe life into the corpse.

In answer to the obvious question I have decided to stand for election for Bengeo Ward at Hertford Town Council on May 2.

Independence For Folly Island

Not much more to add on this post as all the information you will need to vote – Independence For Folly Island – is on my election manifesto page.

Vote John Barber,  Thursday May 2, 2019.

You can view all the candidates for both Parish and District Councils on the East Herts Council Local Election Page.

This is a very brief breakdown of the parties standing in Hertford and in brackets the number of seats each constituency returns.
