Poundstock results

Just back from the Count, here are the results for the Poundstock division:

Election results for Poundstock
Cornwall Council elections - Thursday, 4th June, 2009
Results by Political Party for Cornwall Council elections

Phil Tucker Conservative 668 41% Elected
Bob Booker Liberal Democrat 623 38% Not elected
Rupert Powell UK Independence Party 184 11% Not elected
Paul Sousek Mebyon Kernow 88 5% Not elected
Barry Jordan Independent 82 5% Not elected

Voting Summary
Total votes 1645
Electorate 3087
Ballot Papers Issued 1650
Number of ballot papers rejected 5
Turnout 53%

So, tradition prevails and sustainability is a low priority. Still, Phil is pretty clued up, having been on the TNC email list for the past 8 months.

Further more, having spoken to several of the elected candidates at the count, quite a few are interested in sustainability and local resilience. So I will be sending them some of the ideas I intended to push at the Council and let us hope some such policies will make it, eventhough it looks as if we are heading for Concervative domination!

Latest news:
New unitary authority which replaces the old Cornwall County council as well as the second-tier district councils Caradon, Carrick, Kerrier, North Cornwall, Penwith and Restormel.

SEATS AT A GLANCE
Conservative 50
Liberal Democrat 38
Independents 32
MK 3

Interesting! Who will be in the driving seat? I suppose it depends on the nature of the Independents
