I do hereby declare that the said TURNER Richard Arthur John is duly elected Councillor for the Hellaby Ward.
I’m very disappointed with the result, but had an inkling on the doorstep that it was slipping from us as early as April.
The gain was from us (Tories) Lynda D was the last councillor elected.
Despite the resounding defeat, we’ll carry on fighting in Hellaby next year!
Hard lines, Omar.
Maybe a change of party for next year will see you elected ?
Cheeky, there’ll be none of that! 🙂
But it is important to tackle the UKIP threat head on, instead of hoping it’ll go away, which many (myself included) are guilty of.
