A newly registered political party founded by local politician Brian Silvester has announced it will be fielding a candidate in next years Crewe West by-election.
Putting Crewe First, Independent Residents Group will be represented by its founder, current Woolstanwood Parish Councillor, Brian Silvester.
Cllr. Silvester said:
Crewe West has always had Labour Councillors, Crewe West has had a Tory MP for 10 of the last 12 years. Crewe West has had a Tory Government for the last 10 years. Both Labour and the Tories have totally failed the residents of Crewe West. It is time Crewe had Councillors who put Crewe first and not their party.
Councillors who will do and say what is in the best interests of their constituents and the town…… and not always put the best interests of their party first. Crewe has sadly gone downhill fast in recent years. Voting for the same old parties, who brought about that decline, will not change anything. It is time for a fresh start.
Cllr. Silvester is a former member of the Conservative Party, UKIP and the For Britain Movement.
The by-election was set to take place in April 2020 but was postponed as a result of the Coronavirus, it was triggered after the death of Labour Councillor Brian Roberts.
The Crewe and Nantwich Labour Party announced their candidate earlier this month.
The by-election is now scheduled to take place in May 2021.
