Two City Councillors Resign

Two Lib Dem City Councillors, Cllr Armstrong and Cllr Liddle have resigned.

The latter is not unexpected, having moved away from the City last November, leaving East Chesterton residents with one non-local Councillor for months. The resignations were clearly timed for the electoral benefit of the Lib Dems rather than to ensure residents have effective local representation - the by-elections will both now be held on May 6th, meaning there will be two City Councillors elected in each of East and West Chesterton, (with the remaining wards in the City each electing one City Councillor as expected on that date).
