Change For Bridgend believe that party politics has no place in local government and in particular community councils.
In May’s local government elections we supported Independent candidates contest more than 60 BCBC, Town and Community Council seats resulting in 3 BCBC councillors, overall INDEPENDENT control of Bridgend Town and Coity Higher Community Councils and representation on a further five community councils ensuring that independent voices are heard across our County Borough.
It has been announced that a by election has been called for the Cefn Glas 1 Ward of Laleston Community Council.
This is an opportunity for an INDEPENDENT candidate to stand for election to Laleston Community Council to represent the Cefn Glas 1 Ward.
It can be daunting to put yourself forward for election as an independent against the party machines but Change For Bridgend’s network of members and supporters are more than willing to support you through the nomination and election process. We are passionate about change and the role of independent voices within Town and Community Councils. We’ll never tell you what to do, what to think or how to vote but we will make sure you’re supported.
The deadline for nominations is 4pm this Thursday (10th August) so time tight. So if you’d like to stand for election as an independent and you’d welcome the support of Change for Bridgend please get in touch (message via our facebook page is best) and we’ll get the ball rolling.
The process of change started on 4th May and there’s an exciting journey still to come. Lets bring change to Cefn Glas.
