Bicester’s wannabe councillor

Polly Foster

Polly Foster

I understand Labour have selected their candidate to contest the Bicester West Ward in the Cherwell District Council elections on 22 May 2014.  She is Miss Polly Foster who lives in leafy Fritwell.  It is quite a tiring cycle ride between Fritwell and Bicester!  It is slightly baffling that Labour have had to import this lady from a leafy village and one can only assume they could not find anyone willing to stand who actually lived in the Ward or even in the town?

Of course, the sitting Conservative Councillor is Norman Bolster who lives in Hambleside and who has been a Cherwell Councillor and Executive member for many years.  I include his picture for completeness but I know all residents of the West Ward will see a lot of “Stormin” Norman in the next few weeks.   There may not be a lot covering Norman’s head but there a lot of good sense inside it!
