from Cllr Alex Riley
For the Longstanton District Council seat, the votes cast for the different candidates were as follows:
Sandra Archer Green 54 6% Simon Down Labour 146 17% Callum Hatch UKIP 82 10% Alex Riley Con 525 63% Elected Kirk Taylor Lib Dem 31 4% Turnout: 34%
I would like to thank all my supporters for this vote of confidence.
In all, 19 seats out of 57 were up for re-election yesterday. The Lib Dems won 2 from the Conservatives and won 1 from the Independents. That leaves the new figures for South Cambs as:
Conservative 36 Lib Dem 14 Independent 6 Labour 1
There are no SCDC elections due next year (when County Council elections are due) but in 2018 there will be another election for the whole of SCDC based on revised boundaries.
