A by-election has been called in Haywards Heath after Cllr Jacqui Hollister resigned from her seat on the town council as representative of Franklands Ward.
Cllr Hollister was elected in May 2015, collecting 1,296 votes in the ward, joining fellow Conservatives – Rod Clarke (1,426 votes) & Michael Pulfer (1,102 votes) as the Franklands Ward councillors on the town council where all 15 seats were occupied by the blue brand.
Could a representative of another party, or an independent candidate be the cat among the pigeons?
