Council by-election reminder, and another one on the way.

As we know the by-election for the Trelech ward will be held on the 11th December and the candidates are (in alphabetical order);
Jean Lewis (Plaid)
Hugh Phillips (Independent Group)
Selwyn Runnett (Libdem)

Another by-election is on the way following the sad death of Labour county councillor Mr George Edwards. Mr Edwards represented Hengoed, a two seat ward near Llanelli, the other Member being Cllr Sian Caiach.

The by-election could be interesting with the Plaid candidates only losing narrowly in the 2012 local elections.
There is some speculation that this election could be held at the same time as the general election in May which would save the authority extra costs on polling arrangements and further fees for the Returning Officer.
