Skipper gets selected with Henson for Addiscombe East
WALTER CRONXITE, political editor, on the first two councillor de-selections as a Momentum candidate gets picked for next May’s Town Hall elections
Standing again: Maddie Henson
Labour will field an all-woman slate in Addiscombe East at next May’s local elections, after a ward selection meeting last night chose Maddie Henson and Caragh Skipper.
Addiscombe East is one of the new wards created following the Boundary Commissioners’ review of the borough’s electoral geography, and it comprises largely of what was Ashburton ward.
The change also sees the ward reduced from having three councillors to having just two vacancies next May, so while Henson is one of the trio of Labour activists who won Ashburton from the Tories in 2014, the two campaigners who helped win the ward then, Andrew Rendle and Stephen Mann, failed to be selected.
