The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Can­di­dates have been cho­sen for a Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil by-elec­tion at Eye, Thor­ney and New­bor­ough seat on Septem­ber 7 fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of David San­ders.

Dad-of-five Michael Alexan­der (Green Party) is an en­gi­neer who has lived in Thor­ney for 14 years. He is pledg­ing to cam­paign hard for im­proved pub­lic trans­port and pro­tec­tion of the city’s green spa­ces.

Dr DeFeo (Labour) lives between Eye and Thor­ney and was head of cam­paign com­mu­ni­ca­tions for the Peter­bor­ough Labour Party dur­ing June’s Gen­eral Elec­tion.

He said the coun­cil’s plans to ex­pand Eye are un­ac­cept­able to many and that more ward clean­ing is needed. Stu­dent Cal­lum Robert­son (Lib­eral Demo­crat)said he will cam­paign to de­velop the plan for the Univer­sity for Peter­bor­ough and help lo­cal schools over­come their fund­ing prob­lems.
