Sarah Adams selected to stand for Sandy's County Council seat

Sarah Adams, who served for four years as County Councillor for St Margaret's & Westgate division has been selected to contest St John's division in the forthcoming County Council election.

Sandy Martin MP is due to resign his seat on the County Council following today's County Council meeting.  It is expected that the by-election will be held on Thursday 7th September, meaning his successor will be elected a week before the next scheduled County Council meeting.

In a letter to St John's residents, Sandy said: "It has been an honour and pleasure to serve as county councillor for St John's for the past twenty years.  Now that I am your Member of Parliament, it is right that I should step down as your councillor."

"Sarah served with me as a county councillor, and as my deputy leader, until 4th May.  Four years ago Sarah became the first ever Labour county councillor to represent St Margaret's, and came very close to repeating this feat in May. Sarah was brought up in St John's ward, living in Trafalgar Close, just off Spring Road.  As Labour spokesperson on Adult Social Care, Sarah held the County Council to account for its poor record."

"Sarah will receive my vote on 7th September, and I hope that she will receive yours too."
