Valerie Morris-Cook increased her majority from 305 four years ago to 521. Her increased popularity helped but what also helped was the non-participation of four “low profiles” from the other parties. However, over 500 is still pretty good from the Tories. Lib Dems have planted some roots as well.
Again, Val will be fighting the corner for Grays Beach Park and a host of other issues.
Some say Val may have possible bigger fish to fry. We will see in the coming weeks.
