Alongside the district council elections tomorrow (Thursday), local residents will also elect new councillors to Louth Town Council in some wards.
Out of the seven town council wards in Louth - each of which is represented by three councillors - only two wards will be contested.
Louth North Holme Parish Ward has four candidates: Maurice Bellwood (no party listed); David Hall (Lab); Laura Stephenson (Lab); Fran Treanor (Cons).
Louth Priory Parish Ward has four candidates: Lesley Harrison-Wiseman (no party); Dawn Jackman (no party); Sue Locking (Ind); Kevin Norman (no party).
The other five wards are uncontested, meaning the following candidates will become town councillors this month: Hannah Filer (Lab); Andrew Leonard (Ind); Pauline Watson (Cons); Alex Cox (Lab); Sue Crew (Ind); Jason Garrett (Lab); Darren Hobson (Ind); Jill Makinson-Sanders (Ind); Dave Wing (n/a); Eileen Ballard (Ind); George Horton (n/a); Lynne Cooney (Lab); David Ford (Ind); Julia Simmons (Ind).
As reported yesterday, around 90% of parish council seats across Lincolnshire have already been decided, due to insufficient numbers of candidates to contest them.
