The Deeside.com Twitter timeline is alive most days with people saying they can do a better job than our current elected town council members.

So, here’s your chance to prove it!

There is a vacancy at Connah’s Quay Town Council following the recent resignation of a Councillor in the Wepre Ward.

If the returning officer does not receive ten written requests from elector’s in the Wepre Ward, within fourteen days, thats fourteen days from the 5th of September, not including Saturdays and Sundays, (we make that the 25th September you may want to check though!) then the council will CO -OPT a suitable person to the vacant seat, basically choose someone who ‘fits the bill’.
