    Please note that Labour’s Colin Ball is the only district candidate who lives in the ward he hopes to represent. He didnt stand for Parliament in May, as three of the candidates did, he wants to carry on (he has a track record) supporting residents fighting the cuts from Lichfield and Staffordshire councils.
