This time a sitting councillor in West Sussex – Mrs Jacquie Russell. On her nomination paper for Seaton she gives her address as “East Devon District”:
She appears to be an East Grinstead Town Councillor:
“Jacquie sits on the Public Services Committee at present and is also a West Sussex County Council for East Grinstead South and Ashurst Wood.”
though apparently not standing for re-election this year:
and she sits on her local district council too:
“Jacquie Russell is a former Co-Director of a Construction Project management company and is now a Property Developer. Previously she has been Leader of East Grinstead Town Council and Chairmen of its Planning Committee. She is a mother of five, grandmother of two, and enjoys walking and photography.”
though, again, not standing this year.
So, is this a coincidence? It seems unlikely as she DOES tweet about our area – although her tweets are private) you can see this Google listing:
Maybe she is/was a second home owner? If so, it would no doubt be useful for them to have a voice on the district council, there being so many of them!
Or maybe she has just moved or about to move into the district?
But not immersed in East Devin local politics with all that work in East Grinstead!
Seaton voters, if they see her about, might well have a few questions to ask her!
