The nominations have closed for the local elections in May.

The link to the Stockport Council website is here:

http://www.stockport.gov.uk/services/councildemocracy/elections/localelections2012/sopn2012

Both incumbents Shan Alexander and Martin Candler are standing again for the Lib Dems. The Conservatives, Labour and UKIP are fielding candidates, as you'd expect. Many are old campaigners who've had a go before.

Marple South is a four way contest, while Marple North sees the Greens and Barry Minshall enter the fray. Barry stood as an Independent candidate most recently in 2010.

Well !  I hope that  they all understand  that this term whoever gets elected will be accountable and answerable to Marple residents,  gone are the days when decisions were  made without consultation.   And before anyone votes the question needs to be asked, as to  why Shan Alexander sat as a Governour at CAMSFC and failed to give the heads up about the supermarket even AFTER she ceased being a member of the corporation.  I know what I will be asking her when she comes a knocking on my door and I would suggest you do too. The cheek of this woman never ceases to amaze me  Undecided. Me thinks it's time for change ?  Roll Eyes

Nope, But I do and to be fair so does Shan.

To stand for election you have to get 10 signatures from residents of the Ward you wish to stand in.

Jeez, there are 10 people who backed the Labour guy? Dave, Steptoe and who else is there. The place is going downhill if there are 10 of them

Well I would have to say that David Rowbottom impressed me at the Rally in the park, he seemed a totally honest chap who had Marple's best interests at heart   I am sorry to disappoint you Duke but I'm more of a Screaming Lord Sutch kind of  voter  Kiss

380 people voted Labour in Marple South last year, 10 can't be hard to find to sign for him Smiley

I'm torn between you & Shan Carl. My main concern is if the Town Hall turns Labour. We just need to see the wasters and priorities over in Manchester to understand the harm that can be done.

Miss Marple, I could not agree more with your sentiments, I am sorry that Mrs A has decided to stand for re election, I would have thought that now was the time to quietly stand down.

Im sorry but I really can't see the problem you have with Shan.

If I were a councillor and the company I worked for had in it's strategy an option to expand, my first concern is to my employer and I'd not go blabbing to the local council with confidential information. I happen to be against the college plans to sell to a supermarket but it's not for the councillor to break a confidence just to suit you Mrs M.

Alan of Romily, why the downer on the councillor?

Shan Alexander wasn't a governor of the college for any other reason than she was a councillor, elected by the people of Marple South. She forgot who put her there. She should go.

To my mind the best candidate is Carl Rydings.

Does  anyone know if Shan Alexander ever did the community hours she was sentenced to.  Given at that time she was a magistrate I doubt her peers would have sent her shovelling slack down pit ! So just what did she do to undertake her community hours  Undecided. Does anyone know  Huh
