MAY 2022 LOCAL ELECTIONS: VOTE FOR IFF ON MAY THE 5th!
Independents for Frome (IfF) was formed in 2011 as a means to reclaim political power for local people, and make local politics interesting, relevant and exciting again. And this is still at the heart of our mission.
In the forthcoming election on May the 5th, IfF has put forward 17 strong, independent and locally- driven Town Council candidates. However, seven out of eight of Frome’s town wards will not be contested by any other parties, groups or individuals. While we are thrilled to be able to continue working with the people of Frome, and bring a new group of independent councillors into the Town Hall, we are disappointed that some people in Frome will not have a choice who represents them. We will continue to engage with residents over the coming weeks, as we have always done.
With the formation of a new council for the whole of Somerset, our original mission is more important than ever. This is why we are for the first time standing for election to the new County Council; to ensure that our message of enabling local people to do what’s best for their local communities is heard across the whole of Somerset, for us and other towns and villages too.
We look forward to election day, where we hope to win in Frome North and Frome East for County Council, and Berkley Down ward for Town Council as well.
