Mebyon Kernow – The Party of Cornwall (MK) is standing a fine candidate in the by-election for a seat on Bodmin Town Council (in St Mary’s Ward).
The election will take place on 1st March, 2012.
The candidate is Paul Ellis, who lives in the Ward and has the experience and skills to be an effective representative for Bodmin.
He worked in education for over thirty years as a teacher, the Vice-Principal of a Sixth Form College, and as business manager for a large Community School.
He is a member of both the Bodmin St Piran’s Committee and the Riding Day Committee. He also set up the North West Bodmin Neighbourhood Watch, of which he is the co-ordinator.
Paul is leading opposition to proposals being promoted in the Bodmin Masterplan for the construction of up to 5,000 new properties in Bodmin over the next twenty years, which he rightly describes as “unsustainable over-development.”
