Wells City Council election results
The result of the election of two councillors for Wells City Council in the Ward of St Thomas was as follows:
|Peter Nicholas Harlow||The Green Party||226|
|Rachel Humphreys||Liberal Democrat||559||Elected|
|Sebastian Alexander Johns||The Conservative Party Candidate||378|
|Joseph Parker||Liberal Democrat||470||Elected|
|Sarah Caroline Powell||Wells Independents||319|
|David Swain||The Conservative Party Candidate||404|
Although the turnout looks exceptional, that is a bit deceptive as each voter casts two votes – one for each vacant seat. Even so that is a turnout of more than 1,000 votes.
Congratulations to Joseph Parker and Rachel Humphreys and well done to everyone else for standing and making it a decent contest.
Meanwhile the new vacancy that has arisen in the ward of St Cuthbert will also be decided by an election rather than by co-option. Something which always strikes us as good news.
There is just one vacancy and four candidates – all political candidates – and they are as follows:
Jasmine Emily BROWNE
Mathew James COOLEY
Paul Francis CRUMMAY
Green Party (however the Returning Officer notes that: the particulars of the
candidate or the persons subscribing the paper are not as required by law)
Sean David Edwin SLOAN
The Conservative Party Candidate
