From the Advertiser:
A by-election, at last! In Rawmarsh Ward.
Update: There are now two contenders for the Labour nomination. Firstly and current front runner, is Darren Hughes, the ex-Tory and Borough Councillor.
Secondly there is Shaun Wright’s wife Lisa. her advantages? Is female and lives in the ward. Shaun Wright will be able to continue making council decisions through the bed pillow!!
Her mother, Lyndsay Johnston, is a councillor. Her grandmother was also a Borough Councillor before her. Dynastic politics indeed!
Lisa also works part time as a nurse at RDGH, this will make up her salary very nicely!!
Is Rotherham Labour, going to keep it in the family, after all? We shall see!
