On 6 May 2021: Bexhill Town Council

Bexhill-on-Sea has won its own democratically elected local town council, and on 6 May 2021 the first elections will take place!

Ask EVERY candidate did they oppose a town council or support it. Some have actively fought against it all the way, so will Bexhill be safe in their hands?

Democracy4Bexhill endorses Bexhill Together, a group of independents, many of them D4B supporters, who have long campaigned for a town council and are standing for election in all the 9 wards of Bexhill.

See the candidates at www.bexhilltogether.com and vote on 6 May!
