THIS YEAR'S ELECTION on 4th May for the Calder ward of Calderdale is likely to be exciting and very close.
The candidates for the Calder Ward which covers Hebden Bridge are Stewart Brown (Labour), Nader Fekri (Lib-Dem), Annette Getty (Conservative) and Paul Palmer (Green Party)
All 4 candidates ran in 2004. Green Party candidate Paul Palmer astounded everyone by pushing Labour and Conservative into 3rd and 4th place. There were just 250 votes separating the first three candidates and less than 400 between all 4, each of whom gained more than 1000 votes.
Nader Fekri, Stewart Brown and Paul Palmer are all very well known to those who follow the Hebden Bridge Web regularly.
The 2004 results were as follows:
The turnout in Calder was well over the national average: 52.87% of the 8603 registered to vote actually did so.
