First East Suffolk Lib Dem Councillors announced

April 9, 2019 4:24 PM

Congratulations to all our new Town and Parish Councillors By-election celebration

Town and Parish Councils rarely attract the limelight and attention of higher authorities.

It is nevertheless always sad to see so many local Town and Parish Councils unable to find individuals willing to put themselves forward for public office. In Suffolk we are not exempt from this situation and the consequences are that many local Councils have to function with vacancies. With fewer pairs of eyes and ears to scrutinise local plans and developments, decisions taken at a higher level may fall short for want of a voice on the ground.

Nevertheless, we are pleased that we have many Liberal Democrat Town and Parish councillors already announced from unopposed contests. Whist the following are Lib Dem flag bearers we also congratulate the many Lib Dem members and supporters who have also been returned unopposed in a non-political capacity.

We are pleased to have the following members representing the Party in this important tier of government.
