Correction: Paige Balas
AFTER a misunderstanding an article printed in this week’s Wiltshire Times gave the impression that Paige Balas had been elected as a councillor for Bradford on Avon town council south ward, which is not the case.
Paige Balas is the candidate for the Ideal Bradford party and is one of serveral candidates for the vacant seat, but it is not yet known if an election will take place.
If 10 or more electors from the ward request an election, it wall go ahead. If an election isn’t called, the remaining 11 town councillors can mutually agree a candidate to fill the vacant seat.
The seat became vacant following councillor Steve Plummer’s resignation.
Updates on this will follow.
