APC Councillor Resigns

I understand Councillor Christine Sadler has resigned from  Anston Parish Council. No doubt she has her own reasons for resigning and as far as I know she has not yet made these known.

Cllr.Sadler was a vocal critic of the last Labour administration and on several occasions forced  ex-Labour councillors Jo Burton and Judy Dalton to backtrack on statements about their alleged lack of knowledge concerning the CSE scandal in Rotherham.

Mrs. Sadler is a champion for protection of the environment and wildlife so perhaps she feels her efforts in these fields were not sufficiently addressed by the present council but this is only speculation. She played a significant part in the visits and public presentations by Prof. Mark White and his team from Durham University who undertook archeological digs in Anston Stones and was conscientious in querying and seeking value for tax payers money.

An election for the vacant seat will be held in the next few months.

NB. Comments which criticise APC and/or individual parish councillors will not be published.

You are expected to be intelligent enough to comment on the substance of the post.

      It helps if you attend parish council meetings so you have an understanding of how the council works.

      To stand as a councillor: You need to be over 18 years of age. A British citizen, a qualifying Commonwealth citizen, or a citizen of any other member state of the European Union.
      On the Electoral Register for the council area for which you wish to stand.
      A local government elector of the parish; or a person who during the whole of the twelve months before nomination as a candidate occupied land or other premises as owner or tenant in the parish; or has, during the same period, resided in that area or within three miles thereof; or has during the same period, had a principal or only place of work in that area.

      Once the election is called you apply to RMBC for an election pack.
