Leigh-on-Sea Town Council have just co-opted two new Councillors for the 2018/19 Council year. Gerry Glover will be representing Herschell Ward and Keith Evans will be Councillor for Elms Ward.
There were nine candidates who applied for the two vacancies. A vote was held on the 29th May Full Council Meeting to confirm the successful applicants.
The Town Clerk, Helen Symmons was thrilled that so many people had put their name forward to be a part of the Town Council. There will be a Full Council election next year so there will be plenty of opportunity for those who were unsuccessful to go through the election process.
