Why not be a local council candidate?
IF THERE is a council by-election in your area why not stand and spread the TUSC anti-austerity message yourself? Check regularly for an official ‘Notice of Vacancy’ on your council website and, of course, in the local press to see when seats might come up.
TUSC was initially established precisely with the aim of enabling trade unionists, community campaigners and socialists to resist electorally as part of a national coalition the pro-austerity consensus of the establishment parties. Candidates for local council elections are required to endorse TUSC’s Local Elections ‘core policies’ platform, posted on the TUSC website at http://www.tusc.org.uk/policy.php, but with that provision are responsible for their own campaign.
An application form to stand as a TUSC candidate, so you can be issued with a Certificate of Authorisation from the TUSC National Nominating Officer to hand in with the nomination papers to the local council returning officer, is on the TUSC website at http://www.tusc.org.uk/candidates.php Why not join the fightback?
