Looking Ahead to East Devon Local Elections in May 2011

We’re a few days away from the 2010 General Election and unfortunately the Tory MP Hugo Swire is predicted to get in again here in East Devon BUT we must not despair, as this is only the beginning for our East Devon Green Party which was founded just a few months ago in January 2010.

We need to look ahead to the local elections and start planning our campaign NOW! Greens have got onto local councils all over the country and with the momentum of our General Election campaign to spur us on – now is the time to think about how YOU can be a Green voice in your local community and really make a difference.

Here are the wards and the current district councillors below. The Council consists of 59 Councillors who represent 32 electoral wards. There are 59 seats of which one is vacant in Seaton. Out of the 58 seats filled, there is a disproportionate amount of men – 44 in total and only 15 women in these positions of local power! 43 councillors are Conservative, 10 Liberal Democrat and 5 are Independent. No Greens as yet…..but watch this space!

Please click here to look up your local ward and add a comment to the bottom if you would consider standing as a Green candidate for your local ward. You will receive the full support of the East Devon Green Party.
