Two Labour councillors have been confirmed as candidates for the party at the Staffordshire County Council elections.

Cllr Sue Woodward and Cllr Darren Ennis

Cllr Sue Woodward will seek to defend her seat in Burntwood North, while Cllr Darren Ennis – a member of both Lichfield District Council and Burntwood Town Council – will contest the Burntwood South seat for the first time.

Cllr Ennis said:

“I’m really pleased that my local Labour colleagues have put their trust in me to fight this seat.

“It’s where I’ve lived all of my life and it’s where my wife – and fellow councillor – and I are bringing up our children to be proud Burntwood citizens. 

“It’s a really good place to live, with such a lot of community spirit and I want to ensure that the Burntwood South residents get a bigger say at the county council in Stafford in future.”

Cllr Darren Ennis

Cllr Woodward said:

“It’s been an honour to represent our community at the county council for the last seven and a half years and I’m grateful that Burntwood local Labour members want me to stand again for them and all of their neighbours in May next year.

“Campaigning will not be as it’s been in the past, as we have no idea what the next six months will bring in terms of the COVID-19 impacts.

“I’ll continue though to put all my effort and enthusiasm into my council duties and into the campaign itself.”

  1. Two really excellent candidates and brilliant people and campaigners! It’s only a pity that I won’t be able to vote for either, as I live in Lichfield, not Burntwood!

  2. I have lived in Burntwood for 6 years now and never once have I had a Cllr visit my home to discuss concerns or requirement. Never once but then come voting time you drop leaflets through my door asking me to vote for you. Was never going to happen.

    Trying earning the vote you seek. A leaflet through the door is never gonna work I’m afraid.
