Michael Burke (BNP), Michael Conlon, Christine Beaumont (Labour), Derek Johnson (Conservative), John Kirk (Independent).
Apparently independent, though he has reserved his right to not state on the ballot papers what he represents, leaving me (and I am sure many others) wondering about his real intent. Has attended one MTC meeting last year and one meeting of the unanswerable to the public ‘Maltby Forum’ group where he announced a stream of mis information. He writes abusive language on his Facebook pages and makes false accusations and threats about members of the public. His brother signed his nomination papers yet claims he didn’t know Michael was standing for Borough Council. Michael’s latest, a few days ago before he deleted all his comments and blocked me, is that if he doesn’t ‘win’ he hopes Christine Beaumont will. Strange that he would prefer Labour, who he berates constantly, over an independant like him.
Has lived and worked in Maltby most of her life and is governor at 2 Maltby schools. She has served two terms on Maltby Town Council and has always been active in the community. She attends MTC meetings regularly and other local events. She is standing for town council as well as RMBC. Have had two campaign leaflets about Mrs Beaumont.
Mr Johnson has I understand, stood for election to RMBC since 2007. Unfortunately this is all I know of him. I’ve never received any literature from him and haven’t seen his name mentioned anywhere else except on the candidate papers.
The current recently elected Chair of Maltby Town Council after the last chairperson Cllr Karen Usher didn’t attend council meetings for more than six months.
Mr Kirk has served on MTC for a number of years and is active in the Maltby community. Haven’t see any campaign leaflets for his election to RMBC, as yet.
And there we have it. Five candidates standing to represent Maltby on RMBC, yet only two of them appearing to have Maltby’s interests completely at heart.
Opinions and views highly welcome before and after election day.
