Musings on candidates for May 2012

So who might stand for Maltby in May 2012 ?

Word is that Will Blair is standing down and a Mr Rounds is ready to take his place. Waiting for news from Labour Party on who is hoping to stand for them (or who is being told to stand for them …)

At present we have 14 Labour Councillors out of 18 on Maltby Town Council,-  4 from the same family.

One of the 14, is currently RMBC cllr … for Hellaby  Our new RMBC cllr is conspicuous in her absence from MTC meetings this year, so maybe she is pulled out with work for the borough. Cllr Amy Rushforth will I am sure, be backed wholeheartedly by the Labour Party whilst she draws breath.

So, who will be running for the other seat?

Chairman of MTC, Cllr J Carratt has been turned down as a candidate by the Labour Party for the second year running. Now, what if Ms Godfrey, Labour Group leader for Maltby and Hellaby Ward (who lives in Hellaby) were to be elected  or Cllr L Astbury (newly elected and very inexperienced but of the Stringer family using her grandfather’s email address!)

Did I hear something about Labour wanting/needing more women as councillors … or am I being cynical or  sexist or both?
