Following the resignation of a Conservative county councillor in March ’23, we have a by-election to be held on the same day as the local borough elections.
This is an exciting time as currently the Conservatives have control of Hampshire County Council and a Liberal Democrat win will reduce their strangle-hold on the county.
Those people who live in the Purbrook and Stakes South area will each have two votes to cast. The first will be for their respective borough election. The second will be for the county by-election.
Paul Tansom, our local Lib Dem champion, is standing in the Purbrook ward in the Borough elections and is also standing in the County Council by-election for Purbrook & Stakes South.
Antonia Harrison, our local Lib Dem champion, will be standing in Stakes.
