Nick Pentley from Torbay Liberal Democrats, won the Tormuhan By Election with 46.7% of the vote polling 1126 votes, way ahead of other of other candidates. This was from former counciller Andy Lang, who stood down in the ward earlier this year.
All the hard work has paid off campaigning like machinery putting out leaflets and canvassing, until 9.30pm on Poling day, because we now have another oustanding individual who can represent Bay in supporting it’s community’s needs along side Mandy Darling and Robert Excell conservative.
I congratulate him on his win as do all other party activists within the local Liberial Democrats at Torbay Riviera Centre. This includes Councillor’s Steve Darling, Mandy Darling, Ian Doggitt, Cindy Stocks, Christane Carter, Sue Biles Membership officer, Matt Wilson Torbay Liberal Democrat Party chairman, Richard Raybould Liberal Youth Officer and other party activists.
The Closest was Jackie Wakeham with 533 votes, with a very fine effort to catch Mr Pentley. I would also like to thank all the other people who placed their the support in such as wide range of candidates with differing politcial views Labour Darren Cowell polling 344, just beating UKIP with 315 votes.
