Our local council candidates – (2) Candido Channell

The background to our 2015 city council election in Queen Edith’s is here. This is the second in a series of introductions to each of the five candidates.


Candido Channell runs a local construction company. He was born at the Rosie, went to school at Queen Edith and then Netherhall, and served his apprenticeship locally. “I can remember when the Cattle Market had cattle there – I’m about as local as it gets”, he told Queen Edith’s Online. He is also an ex-soldier, who served with 9 Parachute Squadron, Royal Engineers.

  1. I generally detest everything that UKIP stand for, but I have to say that Candido seems to be a most unusual UKIP candidate: He likes bicycles, 20mph speed limits, walking, wants littering better dealt with and resurfacing of tired footpaths! He seems to be almost as green as the Green candidate 🙂

    His responses to the Cambridge Cycle Campaign questions for candidates for Queen Ediths make very intresting reading: http://www.camcycle.org.uk/elections/2015maydistrictcity/queenediths/

    So best of luck to him, and well done for standing.

  2. I served with Candy in 9 Para Sqn. A hard working bloke with a great sense of humour who NEVER gives up. Worth a 1000 of your regular politicians give him a go!
