Independent councillors to announce intention to stand at county elections
SIX independent councillors will jointly announce their intention to stand in the Buckinghamshire County Council election at the Council's offices in Aylesbury today.
Peter Cooper, Chris Richards, Darren Hayday, Mark Bale, Alan Turner and Rikki Akhter Hussein promise to serve the interests of local people and not those of any political party.
Each candidate is an experienced community representative and either current or former elected members of Buckinghamshire’s District Councils.
Mr Cooper, who has always stood independently and has won at the last four elections, said: “We have the right experience. People are becoming fed up with the way that the political parties work.”
The local council elections will take place on May 2.
