Last week’s election results saw a clean sweep for the Conservatives in all county seats across Dover and Deal, with gains from Labour strongholds in Deal’s Mill Hill district council seat and in Dover’s St Radigund’s town council. Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Scott was returned with over 50% of the vote.
The results were an endorsement of the record of action by the local Conservative team, working together at every level, locally and nationally, to continuously deliver for the communities of Dover and Deal.
These are stunning results for the Conservative team. To be seeing a clean sweep at the county council elections is a strong endorsement by the voters of our work. We have a strong record of action and delivery for our communities. These election results mean that we continue to have a full set of county councillors who are dedicated to serving our communities and delivering as part of a strong Conservative team, as well as new Conservative district and town councillors to boot. Matthew Scott has been returned as the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner with a record number of voters supporting him too.
It was fantastic to see the district council by-election victory in Mill Hill, which traditionally has been a Labour stronghold, as well as the town council victory in Dover’s St Radigund’s, again gained from Labour. This shows that local people are choosing once again to vote for action and delivery not negativity and division. We will continue to work tirelessly for our communities in the years to come.
