There are no political elections planned for Weetwood in 2013. The only related election is at the Cooperative. They have about 20,000 members in Leeds and Wakefield. I have been a Director at the former Leeds Cooperative, also a director of a Cooperative Managerial staff Pension Scheme.
I was a member of the Leeds & Wakefield Co-operative area comittee elected in 2009 for a term of three years. I hope to stand again in 2013 and get involved in the running of one of the largest co-operatives in Europe.
In 2014, we have the Leeds Council local election, also an election for a Trustee of the Railway Pension scheme, I might have a bash at both of those. Also in 2014 its Euro Election time.
In 2015 its local elections again in May, and a General Election is likely anytime.
If anyone wants to stand in these election, start thinking about it now? There is no deposit needed for Council elections, three hundred pounds for parliament and five thousand for the Euro.
So, Its AP for the Co-op, election campaign starts today!
