The candidates for the 2019 Leeds City Council elections have been announced.
We’ve published full lists of the candidates on separate pages for Beeston & Holbeck ward, Hunslet & Riverside ward and Middleton Park ward.
After last year’s ‘all out’ election, we are back into the cycle of electing one councillor in each ward each year.
We’re writing to all the candidates to ask them about why they are standing and what their policies are. We will publish their answers as they send them in so keep checking back to compare answers and make your choice.
