Mexborough First party announces election candidates

by Lee Peace

The Mexborough First political party has announced their three candidates who will stand for election in May.

Serving councillor Andy Pickering will stand for re-election, while Sean Gibbons and Bev Chapman will contest the other two seats.

Coun Pickering said: “I have been privileged to have been given the opportunity to speak up for the town, and promise if anyone tries to damage out town or hide the truth, I will, and Mexborough First will expose it.”

Mr Gibbons, who runs several foodbanks across Doncaster, added: “Many people know that I ‘say it how it is’ and constantly badger Doncaster Council for better services for Mexborough. As a councillor, I would not stop doing this.”

Ms Chapman, a market trader, said: “I would appreciate the chance to put you and your issues to the top of the council’s agenda.”

The other two serving councillors in Mexborough are Sue Phillips and Tracey Leyland-Jepson, who both represent Labour.

All seats in Doncaster are up for election this year due to ward boundary changes.
