Tories choose candidate.

Conservative Candidate for Cleadon and East Boldon.

A little birdy within the Labour Party has reported to the Corner Shop that Jeff Milburn will be the Conservative Party Candidate in the bye-election for the Cleadon and East Boldon ward.

Jeff has twice contested the Marsden and Whitburn ward, in the 2004 elections he polled 683 votes (31%) and two years later in 2006 he improved this to, err 609 votes (26.6%). There is a leaflet going around the ward now promising "A positive Candidate - A Positive Campaign", I hope he has a very "positive" bank account not requiring the topping up that some other Councillors need, I don't know what Jeff does for a living, but it is to be hoped that he isn't a mature student at St. Andrews!

Silly old me, knowing that the Conservatives would need a strong candidate to counter the accusations of pocket lining, should have offered my services at the earliest opportunity.
