Election result

The results for Tower division were as follows:

Mark Ereira-Guyer, Green 1,924 (elected)
Paul Farmer, Con 2,042 (elected)
Kevin Hind, Lab 624
Allan Jones, Lib Dems 625
David Nettleton, Ind 1,846
Richard Rout, Con 1,726
Daniel Warren, Lib Dems 641
Kevin Waterson, Lab 645

Whilst I am delighted to have been elected again to the county council, I am very disappointed that Richard Rout, who was the driving force behind our campaign, was not successful. I have no doubt that, had there not been a swing to independent and minority party candidates as a result of the national feeling against politicians, Richard would have been successful. He certainly deserved to be.
