Election Candidates

Who is Standing for Election

The lists of candidates for the forthcoming elections for Cheshire East and Alsager Town Council have now been published.

The most important local election will be for Alsager’s 3 places on Cheshire East Borough Council. There are 3 Conservative candidates, 3 Liberal Democrat candidates, 2 Labour candidates, 2 Green candidates, 1 UKIP candidate and 1 Independent candidate. You can view the names of people nominated for election as the Cheshire East Borough Councillors for Alsager by clicking here .  

‘Residents may wish to ask where the majority of these candidates were during the last three years when the community has been besieged by Planning Applications, Appeals and SPB meetings to consider Development decisions in Alsager?’

You can view the names of people nominated for election as Town Councillors in the Central Ward here.  Four seats are available for Central Ward.

You can view the names of people nominated for election as Town Councillors in the West Ward here.   Four seats are available for West Ward.

The names of people nominated for election as Town Councillors in the East Ward can be viewed  here.   Because the candidates, who applied for the East Ward, did not exceed the available seats there will be no election contest, so these people have already been elected unopposed onto the Town Council.

ARAG has always been a non-political organisation and has never sponsored any local election candidates. However, we did support the Independent candidate for the Central Ward Bi-election in 2013 following formal interview to confirm that his aims and values were consistent with the position adopted by ARAG

Councillor Longhurst has made available his current aims, values and intentions regarding his candidacy for the Cheshire East Borough Council and Alsager Town Council elections and we are pleased to continue our support for him for these elections; we believe he will continue to do an excellent job of representing our Alsager community.
