Conservatives reveal Gloucester City Council election candidates by Kate | Gloucester News Centre - http://gloucesternewscentre.co.uk/
Gloucester Conservatives have published their list of 39 candidates for next month’s City Council elections.
All candidates have now had their nominations accepted as valid, ahead of the deadline for nominations of 7th April.
19 of the 20 sitting councillors are seeking re-election, with only former Mayor and Deputy Leader of the Council Deb Llewellyn standing down in Quedgeley Fieldcourt. She is replaced as a candidate by Lee Hawthorne, who works for the Alzheimer’s Society and is brother of County Council Leader Mark Hawthorne.
Owner of Butlers Venue Bar and Chairman of Gloucester’s Licensed Victuallers Association Justin Hudson is seeking election in his home ward of Elmbridge alongside Shane Hopkins. Dawn Melvin, owner of Dr Fosters Bar in the Docks, is standing in Westgate ward, where an additional councillor position has been created, with sitting councillors Pam Tracey and Paul Toleman.
Deputy Leader Jennie Dallimore is standing in the new Kingsway ward, where she now lives, with running mate Richard Cook, a Quedgeley Parish councillor. Former Deputy Leader Steve Morgan is looking to make a comeback in Grange with sitting councillor Nigel Hanman and ex-Mayor Norman Ravenhill is standing in Matson and Robinswood with Simon Griffiths and Duncan Hall.
Conservative City Council Leader Paul James, who is hoping to be re-elected in Longlevens with Jim Porter and Kathy Williams, said, “We have a great team of candidates, bringing a huge amount of experience from business, public service and the charity sector. The fact that all bar one of our councillors are seeking re-election shows there is a real hunger amongst our team to finish the job we have started. We’ve made a lot of progress in the twelve years we have been the administration on the council, but there is still a lot to do. Gloucester is on the threshold of achieving something very special and we want to see it through.”
