County Council elections this week!

County Council elections are due to take place this Thursday, 4 May.

It would be encouraging if we had received election literature from all the candidates, but sadly candidate apathy seems to have set in.

At our house, we have only received one election leaflet and haven’t been doorstepped by a single candidate. Comments on the Feniton Focus facebook page seem to show that it’s the same right across the area.

Recent changes to the boundaries of the county council division means that the electorate in Feniton, Buckerell and Gittisham will no longer be represented by the indefatigable Cllr Claire Wright. Instead these three villages have been incorporated into the new division of ‘Feniton & Honiton’.

The choice for those who live in ‘Feniton & Honiton’ is:

  • Andrew Blackwell, Labour
  • David Cox, LibDem
  • Graham Smith, UKIP
  • Phil Twiss, Conservative

Polling stations are open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday 4 May, and the results of the poll will be known during Friday.

    How do they expect voters to make an informed decision on just one piece of paper, I was not happy doing my postal vote, but I did as women fought to give us our right to vote. If there is a poor turn out they need to look at the candidates and not blame the voters.
