Two candidates vie for Spilsby District Council seat
Only two candidates are set for the battle of the election box in Spilsby, whilst the Spilsby Town Council will go uncontested after too few candidates came forward to need an election.
Of the two candidates, only one is representing a political party with incumbent David Mangion representing the Conservative Party and Ellie Marsh standing as an independent candidate.
There will be no election for Spilsby Town Council as only nine candidates were nominated out of a possible twelve councillors to be elected. Eight out of the nine nominations are from existing town councillors, with only one newcomer.

The nominations show an increasing number of candidates choosing not to provide any information on any affiliations to political parties and a disappointing lack of choice in areas where Conservative Party candidates are the only option.
