2018 Local Council Candidates
For the first time in several years, there are all out elections for Hastings Borough Council next May.
A series of minor boundary changes for several wards means that all 16 wards will have elections on May 3 2018 for two councillors.
Local Labour Party Secretary, Jonathan Lee, said today ‘Hastings and Rye Labour Party has been choosing local members to fight these elections over the last few weeks, and is delighted to announce that after an all day selection meeting last Saturday, 31 out of the 32 candidates have been selected by ward members.
As some current councillors, who all continue to serve until next May, are retiring, there are several new faces amongst those selected. A diverse group includes far more women candidates, as the Labour Party nationally seeks to contest all elections with a balanced team of
men and women.’
Full details of all Labour Party candidates and their wards are below.
