Following the resignation of Labour Councillor Craig Turton, a by-election has been called in the East Brighton ward of Brighton and Hove City Council.  The election will take place on Thursday 18 October.

At a meeting last week, Brighton TUSC members unanimously decided to contest the vacant seat and to nominate Jon Redford as our candidate.

The Election Campaign

We will be canvassing regularly from next Tuesday. All offers of help welcome!

The first canvas will be on Tuesday 25th September. We will be meeting at 6.00 pm outside the main entrance to the Sussex County Hospital on Eastern Road (by the bus stops).

We hope to canvas two nights a week (normally on Tuesday and Thursday) and on Sunday afternoons. Leaflets are already being produced.

Regular weekly campaign meetings will be held after the Tuesday canvas. 

More information will be posted asap.
