Mebyon Kernow is top choice in Clay Country
MK activists in the St Austell and Newquay constituency focused resources on five seats for the Cornwall Council elections on May 4th and the results show that, in the local elections, MK was the most popular choice for voters.
A summary of the popular vote in the China Clay Area was as follows:

Mebyon Kernow (five candidates) – 2,383 votes
Conservatives (six candidates) – 1,739 votes
Independents (six candidates) – 1,712 votes
Liberal Democrats (six candidates) – 973 votes
UKIP (one candidate) – 100 votes

Matt Luke and I successfully defended our seats, and we achieved two second places. The others seats were won by the Conservatives (2) and independents (2).

The full results were as follows:

In the town and parish council election, five members were elected unopposed. These were Michael Bunney (St Goran), myself (St Enoder), Brian Higman (Roche), David Holman (St Mewan) and Matt Luke (Treverbyn).

Matt Facey stood in Mevagissey and topped the poll for the Parish Council with 515 votes, while Julie Fox polled 348 votes for a seat on St Austell Town Council – missing out on election by only 22 votes.

Well done all for your hard work and support.
