3:31pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in News
A BY-election has been called in Billinge five months after Labour councillor Alison Bacon stepped down.
The election will take place on Thursday, November 28. Nomination papers must be delivered to the returning officer at St Helens Town Hall by no later than noon on the first of the month.
Councillor Bacon’s resignation in May sparked a debate in the pages of the Star as to why an election had not been called sooner with former Tory leader Wally Ashcroft questioning the need for three councillors per ward.
