This afternoon, at St Josephs in Seacombe, I attended and took part in the count of the ballot papers, returned by voters in Seacombe to choose who they want to be the Conservative Candidate to contest the Local Government elections in May 2010.

The Count
The Count

2,351 ballot papers were distributed and 513 were returned, (21.82%).  the votes cast for each candidate were:   Tony Cox 327,   Ann Lavin179, with 7 spoilt papers.    Therefore it is Tony Cox who will take on the former Labour Mayor of Wirral in May 2010.    Ann was magnaminous in defeat and quick to congratulate Tony on his victory, as we all were.        

Thanks to Tony for the drink (Diet Coke) in the club after the count, and well done to both Tony and Ann, and thanks to all those who took the time to cast their vote.

Lab/Lib Dem Humiliating U Turn on Libraries – Extraordinary Council Meeting Requisitioned by the Conservatives!
