Who is Standing Against Lucy Allan MP?
With the most obvious Labour Councillors all declaring themselves out of the running, and ex-MP David Wright not rushing to get back on the election trail, lets have a look at three potential candidates who might be pinning on the red rosette and spending the next 6 weeks knocking the doors of Telford.
Cllr Kuldip Sahota
Having led the Council for 5 years after Cllr Keith Austin stepped down in 2010, Cllr Kuldip was considered a moderate in the Council. Kuldip stood down himself last year when Cllr Shaun Davies took the role on. Could Kuldip be the one?
Cllr Paul Watling
Heading up an impotant portfolio on the Council looking after Childrens Services, Paul has experience working with ex-MP David Wright. Father of the infamous ‘Rusty’, does Paul fancy the job?
Cllr Richard Overton
Richard declared himself out of the running for leader of the council the last time that role popped up but having ran the local office for David Wright for years, is this the job he has been waiting for?
