Aberystywth Town Councillor by-election

A BY-ELECTION will be opening next week for one Town Councillor in the Bronglais Ward.

The by-election, reported to cost the Council around £1,200 to hold, follows on from the resignation of Chancellor Chris Griffiths, a representative of Plaid Cymru, who left at the beginning of the year due to ill health.

The poll will be held on Thursday November 7th 2013 at the Polling Station Neuadd Buarth Hall on Stanley Road. Polls will be open between 7am and 10pm and all registered voters are eligible to cast their ballots. This marks the first by-election in two years, the last one having been won by the current Mayor, Councillor Wendy Morris-Twiddy, in August 2011.

The three candidates contesting the Bronglais Ward seat are: Bryony Davies representing the Welsh Liberal Democrats; Huw David Fox, an independent candidate, and Lucy Teresa Huws representing Plaid Cymru.

Any students living in Brynderw, Pantycelyn and Penbryn blocks 1,3, 4 and 7 are registered to vote in the by-election.
