The starter's gun has been fired for campaigning leading up to next month's town, community and county council elections.
Powys County Council has published the names of candidates for wards in Newtown and surrounding communities.
With several current county councillors standing down at the elections, there are also some new names for the seats representing parts of Newtown at county level for election on 4 May.
Newtown Town Council faces some seats being left open for people to be possibly co-opted on to the council as there are not enough people standing for election in some wards.
