Ex- deputy leader is to stand

JOHN Foran, a former deputy leader of Calder-dale Council, has thrown his hat into the ring for the election in Warley ward on June 14.

Mr Foran lost his seat in Hipperholme and Lightcliffe last year after 16 years.

The poll should have been held on May 3 but was postposed because of the death of Tory candidate Richard Maycock.

Other candidates are: Jennifer Pearson (Lib Dem), Julie Ann Baxter (BNP), Jenny Carr (Ind), Adrian Greenwood (Ind), Ilyas Najib (Lab) and Faizan Saghir (Eng Dem).
