Full List of Candidates for Wokingham Local Elections

It was announced yesterday, and honestly I had hoped to get this list up then. Sadly, though, my attempts at McGyver-ing an internet connection to get hold of the full list (I’ve been visiting family in the sunny North East over Easter) met with failure.

But here it is: the list of candidates for all 18 contest wards in Wokingham Borough this May. I’ve highlighted Labour candidates in italics. The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats are both fielding full slates. Labour are standing 14 candidates, UKIP 7 and the Green Party 13. There are 2 independents.

I’m a little surprised at the number of councillors not standing for re-election. Eight elections will be without an incumbent on the ballot paper- with none of the three Lib Dem councillors up this year seeking to keep their seats. Which seems a little…well, odd.
