Tories lose out in Stoneleigh
The size of the Tory group on Epsom & Ewell Borough Council slipped to just one member last night as the RA regained the Stoneleigh seat in yesterday's by-election. Jim Dapre the Lib Dem candidate came third.
The voting was:
- Jim Dapre (Lib Dem): . 209
- Bill McGinniss (Lab): .... 72
- Chris Muller (Tory): ... 560
- Sandy Sanger (RA): ... 597
The RA candidate thus beat the Tory by 37 votes, so regaining this seat taken for the Tories by Franco Pedace in 2003.
Jim Dapre would like to thank all those who voted for him and all those who assisted in his election campaign.
