Byron Melton of The NEWS reported this week that both Councillors Wilson and Satchwell have been de-selected as Conservative candidates for the 2019 Borough Elections. A Martin Box, who does not live on Hayling, has been chosen to stand instead for Hayling West whilst Cllr. Wilson will stand for Hayling East. Cllr. Satchwell has not been selected to stand again. This is a shock for many who have worked in residents' groups alongside both Cllr. Wilson and Cllr. Satchwell, finding both Councillors hard-working and pro-active for us here on Hayling. We understand that it is the local Conservative Association members who have de-selected these Councillors as candidates.
