Nothing submitted.



Kate Grannell (Green Party)

I have lived in Whitby for many years with my family. 

I care deeply about the area and have been a community leader in the campaign against the hydrogen village trial.

I am working hard to ensure that residents’ views are listened to and respected. 

I’m overwhelmed by the encouragement and support that I have received over the last few months.

Many residents have said they are voting for me in the local council elections this May because I work hard and I’m the only candidate that actually lives in our area.



Jimmy Shannon (Labour)

People who know me, know that I am for the people. I’ll fight hard for the interests of Whitby residents, because that’s who I am.

It’s been a turbulent time in local and national politics, but over this past year I hope I have shown people in Whitby that I am a grafter, and that I don’t give up easily.

I have traditional Labour values – I believe in community, hard work and fairness.

So whether it’s representing the views of residents over the hydrogen village proposal, organising clean up days to clear litter and fly-tipping in our community, or helping people out with neighbourhood issues like reporting road repairs, I have shown that I have got what it takes to be a proper councillor for Whitby.

I’m not a single issue campaigner, I care about every issue. I care about you, your family and the town we live in.

I hope you can support me on Thursday 4th May – I won’t let you down.
