Cllr Carr, who was last elected in 2007, has been commuting between our area and Sardinia since March.
He resigned last month, just days before he was due to be kicked out of the authority for failing to attend a council meeting in six months.
Under the Local Government Act 1972, a councillor who fails to attend any meetings for six consecutive months ceases to be a member of the authority.
Cllr Carr had not attended a meeting since the Safer and Stronger Communities Policy Development Committee on February 23.
Jamie Summerfield, spokesman for Cannock Chase Council, said: “The by-election will be held on October 15. The notice of election will be published on September 10 and nomination forms will be accepted by the council from this date.”
- Chris Collis, Lib Dem;
- Brian Gamble, Nu Labour;
- Sean Gleason, UKIP;
- Shaun Grimsley, BNP;
- Michelle Lucas, Tory (or Blue-Labour).
As we saw during the Euro election campaign, the Marxist left MSM in general and the BBC in particular, actively led the 'undecided' voter and the 'protest' voter away from the BNP towards UKIP.
There are many ways other to undermine a candidate, one of which is by simple confusion tactics such as a similarly sounding candidate from the NUJ's safety valve, UKIP, who is alphabetically listed above Mr Grimsley.
