A former St Albans mayor is running for Herts county council in the election on Thursday, May 4.

Annie Brewster, currently a district councillor for Wheathampstead, is contesting the Harpenden Rural seat.

She told the Herts Advertiser: “I feel most honoured to be the selected candidate for Harpenden Rural division.

“If elected, I very much look forward to using my passion and energy to deliver positive change to some of our district’s loveliest rural villages as their representative at County Hall.”

Several other big names from the district council are running for a county seat.

Among them is Labour’s Dreda Gordon, re-running for her county seat, who said: “I have been a county councillor for the last four years.

“I believe I have made a real difference in the community and I want to carry on doing so.”

St Albans’ Sandy Walkington is another of the county councillors running again. He said: “It is an absolute privilege.

“I represent a wonderful area that contains such a diverse range of people, and I hope they will give me the chance to continue serving them.”

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
