ANOTHER changing area in Thurrock but you feel that the colour of the winning rosette will be the same.
Both in general election votes and local election vote, this is a strong Labour area.
The three councillors sound like a firm of Victorian solicitors: Pothercary, Kerin and Fish.
Tony Fish is a veteran councillor and actually seems to fit very well with is two colleagues. Not a week goes by without a press release from them.
There is a lot of change and a lot to represent and they seem to do an effective job from applications in Badgers Dene to crime and anti-social behaviour in and near the high street.
Always feel like damning by faint praise but cllr Fish has always been quiet but effective and a lot of loyal years serving his community.
It is good to see a Green candidate. With many different parties represented in Thurrock, it seems a shame that they wont have representation in the chamber (Additional Member System for Thurrock anyone?)
It would be good to see a Green candidate maintain their presence in the borough after May 6th.
Looking at 2019’s results, Labour will be looking for over 50% of the vote.
YT Prediction: Labour Hold
Tobi Adewa Faboro (Cons)
Daniel Fallows (Green)
Tony Fish (Labour)
