At the moment the only party with councillors at County and District level is the English Democrats Party.
The state of play as we prepare for tomorrow’s elections is as follows.
One Elected Mayor.
Peter Davies, elected as Mayor of Doncaster in June 2009.
There is no Mayoral election tomorrow but there is a referendum to decide if the Mayoral system in Doncaster should be scraped, Mayor Davies and the EDP are totally against this, even though it was one of the main pledges in Mr Davies’s election manifesto!
One County Councillor.
Deirdre Gates. Hertfordshire County Councillor.
Elected to the council in June 2009 as a BNP councillor she defected to the EDP in July 2011. Her division is up for election in 2013.
Four District level councillors.
Elliot Fountain, Boston Borough Councillor.
