Election date fixed to replace disability row councillor Collin Brewer
An election will be held on September 5 to replace the former Cornwall Councillor for Wadebridge East Collin Brewer.
Mr Brewer resigned earlier this month after he was found guilty of breaching the Councillors’ Code of Conduct, for what Cornwall Council said were “grossly offensive” comments about disabled children following an interview he gave to the Disability News Service.
The Wadebridge East division extends beyond the town boundary to include two wards from the neighbouring parishes of Egloshayle (North ward) and St Kew (St Kew Highway ward).
The Notice of Election is due to be published on Wednesday July 31 with the list of candidates standing for election published by Tuesday August 13.
A representative from Cornwall Council said nomination packs are being prepared and will be available from the Liskeard office from Thursday 25 July.
Members of the public have until midnight on Tuesday August 20 to register to vote in the by election.
