The UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, has announced plans to call snap general election on 8 June.
Now more than ever we need to have strong independent voices in Local Government, supporting local communities. Candidates from the main political parties will be mired in the fall out of the announcement today and campaigning for the June 8 General Election before they have even had the chance to be voted in locally on May 4.
Local and national issues will become merged as the local election campaigns become about the General Election, we need to stop this from happening, local elections are about local issues.
I am standing as an Independent candidate in Turriff and District ward on May 4, please consider giving me your vote so I can keep working for our local communities while the main political parties are out campaigning for the General Election.
