Good luck to Jonny Edge and team in Suffolk this Thursday

Jonny Edge (left) and his team in Newmarket and Red Lodge

There are two by-elections in Suffolk this Thursday, both caused by the resignations of a Conservative councillor who was elected as an MP in Aberconwy, North Wales.

Jonny Edge is our candidate in both the contest for the Newmarket North seat on West Suffolk District Council and also the battle for the Newmarket and Red Lodge seat on Suffolk County Council.

Well done to Jonny for putting his name in the frames, and good luck to him and his team for Thursday!

You can read more details on the West Suffolk Liberal Democrats Facebook page.

There is also a by-election for Hundon Parish Council and a referendum on the Newmarket neighbourhood area plan on the same day. Details are on the West Suffolk Council website.

    Nice photo. Obviously grey power rules in West Suffolk; but…..which one is ‘Jonny Edge’?

    John Marriott, from some quick research on Social media, I think it looks as if Jonny is not in the picture. (He may have taken the photo)

    John Marriott, apologies, it seems, (I think) that Jonny is wearing a yellow jacket in the photo!

    @Catherine Jane Crosland
    I’m afraid I don’t do social media. Your first response partially explains why! If that is Jonny in the yellow jacket, perhaps being an Ed Davey lookalike might augur well for future success. Vote Ed?!
