Following Steve Plummer’s resignation from the Town Council, it’s very likely that there will be a by-election for the vacant seat in South Ward. It’s not yet confirmed – 10 or more electors from the ward have to request election. If an election isn’t called, the remaining 11 Town Councillors can mutually agree a candidate to fill the vacant seat.
Our candidate – Paige Balas
Whether there is an election or decision to co-opt, we are very pleased to introduce our candidate for the vacancy, confirmed by members and councillors at a recent meeting.
Many of you will know Paige from her work with the Preservation Trust, Clean Up Bradford (CLUB), the Women’s 100 or even the Skatepark project – it’s fair to say she’s been hugely involved in the community!
This means different things to different people. Some place the physical make-up of the town very high on their list, while others are more focused on community and environmental issues. By working together, we can address issues across this spectrum.”
“Paige is a brilliant candidate. Her involvement in so many projects within the town already demonstrates her considerable commitment, and she would be a wonderful addition to the Town Council. Two years into this process, we’re making huge progress across many areas, from environment to youth policy, and we very much hope that Paige will join us to add her own expertise.
