At the Courthouse tonight there were 7 nominations for 5 seats on the River Community Council. The seven candidates are, Jean Tolmie, Lesley Bolton, Tommy Hogg, Bill Murdoch, Stephanie Whittaker, Carol Clark and Ian Henderson.
The election process starts next week and ballot papers will be issued to the voters who can vote between the 27th of November and the 11th of December. The result will be announced at a public meeting in the Courthouse on the 15th of December.
This is an historic event and a chance for the 4,900 voters that live in the River CC's area to indulge in a little local democracy. Happy voting :-)
