This is the time of year that all local politicians dread, at least those involved in selection or reselection battles for next years May council elections, that is!
I bring you the full list of sitting labour councillors who’s term of office expires next May:
Anston and Woodsetts Ward: Darren Jason Louis Hughes –
Con Lab – 1704 (520)
Boston Castle Ward: Mahroof Hussain – Lab 1545 (641)
Brinsworth and Catcliffe Ward:
Dinnington Ward: Simon Tweed – Lab 979 (117)
Holderness Ward: Hilda Landells Jack – Lab 1311 (515)
Hoober Ward: Frank Hodgkiss – Lab 1322 (465)

Rawmarsh Ward: Glyn Whelbourn – Lab 1291 (369)
Rother Vale Ward: Jeb Nightingale – Lab 1161 (392)
Rotherham East Ward: Maurice Richard Kirk – Lab 1163 (559)
Rotherham West Ward: Kath Sims – Lab 1227 (269)
Silverwood Ward: Ann Russell – Lab 1044 (138)

Valley Ward: Simon Currie – Lab 982 (171)
Wath Ward: Alan Gosling – Lab 1461 (619)
Wingfield Ward: Lindsay Johnston – Lab 1110 (118)
They aren’t a pretty bunch are they? If Labour intends to field more than just a mere few of these miserable specimens as their candidates again, the people of Rotherham should rightly conclude that the local labour party is taking them for fools!
