Congratulations to our local councillors .
Both Colin Winfield and KT King got over a thousand votes!
No one else in Tendring came near to a thousand.
Well done, both of you, please keep up your good work.
Also Joy who got elected.
I am really pleased that Delyth Miles was elected as an Independent in Walton, after the Conservatives campaigned with everything they had to elect Ann Poonian.
Unlike other wards, Ann Poonian sent out five leaflets (unheard of), & had councillors and our MP on the streets working on her behalf.
Although Delyth had nothing like the resources of Ann, she had the support of the residents who know just how hard Delyth has worked in Walton on their behalf in the past, and they swung the vote in her direction.
Tendring also had 600 ballot votes spoiled, which hasn't been widely reported.
reading through and found this - made me smile.
600 eh, if it was a Muslim labour ward that 600 would have got used along with another 600 OR MORE unknown voters but we are told to not Investigate as it may upset some.. This Country just gets worse each day
would take far too long to explain why we retired 10 years early and moved here,
but never regretted doing either.
