A by-election for Douglas’s Murrays ward is to be held to elect one member to Douglas Council.

The by-election will take place on Thursday, June 16.

There are three candidates nominated and they are: Falk Horning, of Woodville Terrace, Douglas; Kieran Lavery, of Springfield Avenue, Douglas, who is a semi-retired taxi driver; and Keith Teare, of Malvern Road, Douglas, who is a taxi driver.

Polling stations will be open on the day from 8am to 8pm.

There will be three polling stations and these are situated: at the Masonic Hall on Woodbourne Road, for the Albany polling district; MacFadyen Hall on Tromode Rooad, for the Garden City polling district; and at St Ninian’s High School for voters resident in the Somerset polling district.

The vacancy was created when Councillor Claire Wells transferred from Murrays ward to Hills ward in the last local authority elections in April.
