Following my blogpost here LINK – Judith Beckman has today officially resigned as a Councillor serving the London Borough of Brent in Barnhill Ward.
A by-election vote will be held on May 3rd 2012 to minimise the cost of an election to the Brent taxpayer. Judith moved to Plymouth in January and decided she would stand down in May so that Brent would not have to foot the avoidable extra cost of having a by-election on an odd date. With a major election already happening in May to elect the Mayor of London it makes perfect sense to have the election on this date.
I now think it is time for Dudden Hill Liberal Democrat Councillor David Clues, who has been living in Brighton since 8th December 2011 to resign so that a by-election can be held in Dudden Hill on May 3rd 2012
