|January 8, 2013||Filled under East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Parish Councils, Politics, Public Notice, Withernsea|
A VACANCY for a Town Councillor in Withernsea to represent the South Ward has arisen following the resignation of Councillor Georgie Owens last month (December 2012).
The last vacancy on Withernsea Council resulting in an election was in the North Ward on December 20th 2012, when – as reported in the Holderness Gazette – only 131 people voted; that is 5.4% of the 2,267 eligible to vote. The victorious candidate was Callum Hollingworth who obtained 67 votes compared to the one other candidate who got 63 votes.
A by-election to fill the vacancy in the South Ward will only be held if 10 electors of the town write to the chief executive of East Riding of Yorkshire Council at County Hall, Beverley, East Yorkshire, HU17 9BA, by Tuesday 22nd January 2013 claiming an election.
If the chief executive does not receive such a request, the town council will be informed that it may fill vacancies by co-option, which means that the council members will elect a new member from those who have expressed an interest in joining the council.
If you would like to discuss the role of councillor, please contact the town council by contacting Mrs Jayne Moxon at e-mail email@example.com or write to The Council Chamber, Municipal Buildings, 243 Queen Street, Withernsea HU19 2HH.
