A by-election in a swing seat has been announced after the resignation of a county councillor
Liberal Democrat Charlotte Hogg has left the council due to work commitments, ten months after narrowly winning the St Albans North constituency, which covers the New Greens, Townsend, Batchwood and Bernards Heath area.
Fellow Lib Dem councillor Chris White said: “We will miss her as it is very important to have young people on the council and she is a very competent and able person.”
She took the seat with a majority of 71 from Labour’s Roma Mills, who has confirmed she is running again.
The Liberal Democrats have selected chartered accountant and Remain campaigner Karen Young, while the Conservatives have selected Marshalswick South district councillor and former mayor Salih Gaygusuz.
The by-election will be held on Thursday, May 3.
