Pound Hill South and Worth by-election
There will be an election for a replacement councillor for Pound Hill South and Worth on 8th June, the same day as the general election. Labour's candidate is Colin Flack.
Colin is standing for the second year running, having significantly increased Labour's vote share in 2016. Colin was born in Crawley hospital in the early seventies and has lived in Crawley all of his life. He has lived in the Pound Hill South ward for over 20 years, is passionate about the area and would welcome the opportunity to represent local residents.
Colin works for the Civil Aviation Authority where he is responsible for managing the Safety Data team and also representing the UK at aviation safety related meetings in Europe. He would be delighted to put this experience to good use in Crawley Borough Council meetings.
Colin and his wife Annie have three children who have all attended the Pound Hill schools, so Colin is extremely familiar with Pound Hill and feels that his knowledge of the ward, its residents and the issues they face will prove beneficial should he be elected as councillor for Pound Hill South and Worth.
Colin thoroughly enjoyed meeting residents throughout his 2016 campaign, listening to the problems that they may have and identifying ways to help them. Labour will maintain control of Crawley Borough Council regardless of this by-election result and so, if elected, Colin can say with absolute confidence that he would be a more effective voice for Pound Hill South and Worth and would have genuine influence within the Council.
