Each one has been given the opportunity to tell readers why they’re running for a seat on the borough council and why people should vote for them.

Here’s what candidates standing in the Primrose ward have to say.

Walter Armstrong (Conservative Party)

My name is Walter Armstrong. I’m delighted to be standing as the Conservative Party candidate for Primrose, the ward in which I live.

South Tyneside Council needs a strong and effective opposition that can provide scrutiny to Labour’s grip of our council.

My priority will be ensuring our town centre is more business friendly.

I would start by working hard to increase the amount of free parking in our town centre.

If elected, I would be a strong voice for the ward and work hard for the residents.

As an opposition councillor, I would also work hard to make sure council money is well spent.
