Today was the by-election for Frodsham Town Council's South ward.
The result declared earlier this evening was:
Caroline Ashton Conservative 229 votes 59.3%
Ryan Edgehill 116 votes 30.1%
Tom Reynolds 38 votes 9.8%
Spoilt papers 3 votes 0.8%
Total votes cast 386 votes
There was a 22% turnout. Caroline Ashton secured 59.3% of the votes cast in an overwhelming endorsement of her positive, no-nonsense manifesto.
I am really looking forward to working with Caroline. Her straight forward, candid approach will be a tremendous asset for Frodsham.
This seat was last contested in a by-election in 2011 when Carol Davis (Conservative) was elected with 183 votes to Geoff Bath's 132 votes.
Caroline Ashton's election has increased the number of votes cast and the proportion of victory for the Conservative Party. Absolutely fantastic!
