At the polling station yesterday, the Maltby electorate summoned up as much enthusiasm as they could muster with a turnout of 17.4%
The result was – Labour 154, Ind 123 and TUSC 42
with the Labour Party candidate Richard Price being elected.
On the day, as usual, the votes were over taken by the postal voting. It would be good to be able to say that this is a fair and open method of voting but unfortunately past experience shows differently.
Congratulations to Richard Price. Hopefully, he has a mind and voice of his own which will show in his ideas, decisions and actions. Hopefully also, these will be for the benefit of the whole Maltby community and not just Labour Party’s cronyism.
Maltbyblogger will be asking our new councillors to comment on here.
(Perhaps they will be able to help get MTC’s website up and running, too )
