Meopham North result
By Alan Bullion
As promised, the result from the Meopham North council by-election count this morning:
Con 721 (64%)
LD 192 (17%)
Lab 155 (13.8%)
UKIP 59 (5.2%)
Considering we didn't even have a candidate when the last full borough elections were held and only won 5% of the vote the last time we stood in a by-election, in 2012, this is very encouraging. I want to send a big thank you to all those who helped in the campaign, particularly Mary, Simon, Flora, James, Tristan, Tony, Sarah, Adrian, Robin and Alastair. This now gives us something to aim at in May 2019 though, admittedly, it is a big task.
Thanks again for all your support.
