An event is being held in Newport on 28 January 2017 at 1pm for anyone on the Island looking to stand as an Independent Councillor.

Independent Councillors are not members of a National political party, but instead focus on the issues most important to Island residents.

Making a positive difference
In the last four years Independents have been making a difference at County Hall free from a national party or whip, improving educational standards, protecting the services dearest to Islanders and protecting vulnerable people from the National austerity agenda.

Advice and help
The event being organised by The Island Independents is to give anyone considering standing as an independent candidate the chance to come forward and meet existing Councillors and to get advice and help with running their campaign.

The event will see a number of local councillors address prospective candidates and explain how to become an Independent Councillor and what the role entails.
