Councillor returns, three months after losing seat
A candidate who failed to retain his seat on Sandbach Town Council in May’s local election has been appointed to public office, just three months later.
Coun Alan Smith, will represent Town Ward for Labour.
The seat had been uncontested in May’s poll as only four candidates put their names forward for five places.
Coun Smith had been elected in 2015 to represent the Ettiley Heath and Wheelock Ward, but failed to hold onto his seat at the spring poll.
