Independent candidate announces for Pickstock

Story Picture
And speaking of big announcements, the one just reaching this desk is right up there with the biggest. The official release will be published on Monday but we are reliably informed that another veteran political activist has decided to jump head first into the deep end of the electoral pool. Nicholas Pollard Senior, former labor leader and present newspaper columnist, told News Five that he has decided to contest the seat in the Pickstock division. Although he is running as an independent, he plans, if elected, to support the aims of the United Democratic Party. He says his reason for running is to help defeat George Price, whom he believes, at eighty, is too old to be involved in politics.
