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.”
