Nominations for the local elections have now been published. On the community council (of which there are ten seats) there are fourteen duly nominated candidates (six existing council members including myself, and eight new candidates). On the county council it is repeat of last time, when I polled 14% of the vote when I had only been in the ward for about a year or so, so now that I have been a member of the local community council for the past five years I am hoping that vote share will increase (although whether I will get the 36% swing needed to win, remains to be seen).

I must of course thank Sticks for his contributions and will let him know when they appear on my campaign materials

Today marks the end of the first full week of the election and in that time I have walked 10.2 miles, delivered to 300 houses and today got my first confirmed votes. As Sticks has been so very kind as to provide me with some pictures, it only seems fair that I post a picture showing where those ten miles have been
