    Thanks. How difficulty can it be for Leeds City Council to get their act together?

    How come some of the candidates don’t put their correct address? Is this legal? It is certainly misleading for the electorate. I only looked at five wards and I spotted at least four errors.

    Back in the day Leeds Elections Office would pride themselves on getting the full list in the papers on the day nominations closed. Legendary names like John Dransfield and Tom McCarthy in charge then!

      Stephen McBarron is a Facebook troll. Offensively making untrue accusations of racism on Yorkshire Evening posts page.

      • Stephen McBarron says:

        I’m actually a Co-Opted member of Leeds City Council Inner Area Committee and Chair of Bramley Labour Party. This individual ‘Harry George’ is a racist who uses a fake name and account to peddle his bile. The authorities know about him and are keeping an eye on him.

    Thanks. Didn’t know which candidates were running. Thou now I have that information, I can’t seem to find much information about any of the candidates running in this area. Its extremely annoying voting for someone when you haven’t had an informed choice – think that’s the right context.
