Conservatives back on Wells City Council
If John Osman was feeling lonely, at least he has a little more company today. Mr Osman is a former Leader of Somerset County Council and Cabinet Member for Mendip District Council. Prior to 6 May he was also the last sitting Conservative on Wells City Council.
The City Council is a strange beast in that councillors are elected on a party ticket. However they are then supposed to vote in a non political way on City Council business. Prior to the 6 May the City Council had 1 Conservative, 5 LibDems, 4 Wells Independents, 2 Greens and 4 cacancies.
Following the elections of the 6 May there are now 3 new Conservatives and another Wells Independent councillor. The Libdems did not put up any candidates under the party banner. So the new council will look like this:
- 5 LibDems
- 5 Wells Independents
- 4 Conservatives
- 2 Greens
