By-elections in Blackbird and Greater Leys caused by the sad resignation of long-standing councillor Val Smith have been set for November 27th.
Val Smith resigned her City Council seat in Blackbird Leys ward and County Council seat in the Leys division a few weeks ago. City Councillor for Northfield Brook Steve Curran is resigning from his City Council seat and standing for the County Council vacancy for the Leys. This means there are City Council by-elections in both wards on the Leys. Our candidate for Blackbird Leys ward is Linda Smith, and for Northfield Brook ward Sian Taylor.
Residents of both Blackbird Leys and Northfield Brook will vote in two polls on November 27th, one for the County Council and one for the City Council.
