The council election candidate who might not do the four years



THEY’LL be getting ballot paper fatigue in Highgate. Not much longer than a year after the last round of boroughwide council elections in 2010, Labour councillor Michael Nicolaides stepped down causing the inconvenience of a by-election. He said he felt he could not ‘give up the time the post deserves’.

Now, Labour seem potentially prone to the same problem in the same ward as one of their candidates, Sally Gimson, continues her quest to become an MP. Linked this week to the Sheffield Heeley seat, where Meg Munn is stepping down and leaving behind a tidy Labour majority, Sally, by her own admission, would step down from the council soon after being re-elected to the Town Hall if she finally finds gets a safe constituency. So that would be the Highgate ward back at the polls – again. 

For her part, Sally says, although don’t expect this to be on the council election leaflets, that she’s made no secret of her desire to be an MP – having missed out on selection in Hampstead and Kilburn recently. And she can’t, after all, help the timing of next year’s general election. Ironically, though, Sally was first elected to the council by standing as Michael’s replacement in the by-election his resignation had triggered.
