On Wednesday, members in Brent selected two local residents, Rosanna Currans and Cllr Avtar Sandhu to contest the ward in May 2015. The sitting councillor, Drew Swinerd, was re-adopted.
Rosanna Currans, who led a successful campaign to secure compensation for Dartford from EDF after power failures in 2009, has commented that "I have lived in Brent for well over 30 years and I was absolutely delighted to be selected as a prospective candidate for next year's local elections. If elected I will represent the interests of my fellow residents to the best of my ability."
Cllr Sandhu, a resident of York Road, was recently elected to serve as The Mayor of Dartford for the 2014-2015 year.
Cllr Swinerd comments that "I am delighted to have been re-adopted. Serving the residents of Brent has been a great honour and I shall endeavour to continue working on their behalf to the best of my ability beyond 2015 should they wish to elect me again."
Cllr Nancy Wightman, who has a long association with Brent, has opted not to seek re-election. Cllr Peter Cannon, who has represented Brent since 2011, has been adopted as a prospective candidate in Joydens Wood, where he is a resident.
