Why are there local elections for STC this year?
I don't know who they are?
How many can I vote for?
Does it matter?



These questions and more information about the candidates standing for Silsden Town Council can be found here:

news.silsden.net/pictures/local-elections-2019-silsden-town-council


Councillor Robinson (Mayor for the last two years) has resigned from the council, and Councillors Walton and Naylor do not have to be elected because they represent OUTER Silsden, seats which are not being contested, (so there was no requirement for a declaration of interest) - see the FAQ section when you follow the link above.

(this is the reason these people have been greyed out from the picture above)

Please share it, the more people that know what our Silsden Town Councillors do for our community the better.

I will do something similar for the Ward Council election which will also take place on the 2 May, but I haven't got all the leaflets yet. They have been promised for next week, a bit late as the postal votes have been sent out.

For the Ward Concillor Election - I will add the information when I have information from ALL the candidates so that voters can make an informed comparison.

I have just checked out some of the Current Town Councillors details following your links on News.Silsden webpage and found that some councillors have failed to fill in their register of interest details at all. One example is that of Cllr Walton...there may be others but i haven't checked them all.

Does anyone know if this is legal?

Surely all councillors have to fill in their details correctly.

The public should be fully aware of any interests.

I WONT be voting for any Councillor that refuses to disclose relevant details.

Okay..Understood Peter...BUT that doesnít procure the fact that our Councillors are required to complete the register of Interest. Many have submitted the form but not filled it in, completely or partially!

So my question still stands is it Legal for the Councillors not to fill in these declarations correctly?

As I have said I will not be voting for anyone that fails to declare their register of interests correctly...and neither should you!!

Well done Cllr Caroline Whitaker, Darren Edwards and Cllr Loud!!

The votes have been declared and the one losing a seat is:

Margaret Croft 293 votes 3% Not elected

This is a big loss as Mags has worked hard for Silsden (the Gala and and the Youth Council amongst other things) She was the Deputy Mayor at the time of the election and Silsden will be the poorer for not having Mags as part of STC.

Such are the injustices of Town Council elections.

Not so much as an injustice but a democracy!!
However..I am very concerned that women only represent 20% of the panel of STC.
We should somehow have a fairly equal representation of sexes..given that other institutions these days must have a fairer representation!!

You could argue to find ways to get more women to stand but not how many should be elected.The Town Council should look at how their work is explained to the public then hard working Cllr's dont lose out as appears to have happen here

Congratulations to all those elected to the Town Council.

Also a big thank you to Margaret Croft for her hard work on the council and for all the hard work she does in and for Silsden.Hopefully she will bounce back soon.

The new councillors will no doubt joining in helping out at the various volunteer organisations and hopefully silsden.net will keep us upto date.

Could someone tell me why a prospective conservative councillor has been put down as independent on election information, is it another con.

The official explanation (from Bradford)

Apparently at parish level a candidate can describe themselves however they like, but can only display a party badge with express permission of the party.

No idea why those of the candidates that were Ward Councillors, or standing as Ward Councillors, didn't declare there party allegiance as a lot did in other parish elections.

Itís a huge disappointment that Mags has not been elected back onto the Town Council. She has been a dedicated supporter of the Silsden Community over many years through her direct involvement with numerous voluntary organisations. She was intrinsic in supporting and co-ordinating Silsden Youth Council, is involved with the park, the gala and our green spaces. A person who doesnít shout about her achievements, but keeps under the radar, just getting on with the job of making our society a better place to live. I hope to see Mags back in the future.
