2017 HCC Election:The Liberal Democrats have gained.


Results from yesterday’s Herts county council election are in, and Liberal Democrats have taken a clean sweep of all St Albans divisions.

In St Albans Central division, Lib Dem Christopher White retains his seat, with 2,644 votes - he smashed the competition, with Conservative candidate Alec Campbell taking less than half of that with 1,040.

Green candidate Keith Cotton got 526, Labour Glenys Vaughan got 567, and Keith Hussey from the Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts party got 22 votes.

This means Cllr Christopher White had 55 per cent of the vote.

In St Albans East, another Lib Dem Anthony Rowlands has been elected with 2,339 votes.

The closest anyone got to Cllr Rowlands was Conservative candidate John Whale, with 849 votes - Ukip Mick Hawkes got 125, Green Tom Langton bagged 169 ballots, and Labour John Paton received 753 votes.

St Albans North tells a similar story, with Lib Dem Charlotte Hogg winning the seat on 1,675 votes - taking it from Labour candidate Roma Mills, who got about 70 less votes with 1,604.

In that division Matthew Dovey from Ukip got 76, Conservative Brian Ellis got 1,239 votes, and Green Gillian Mills had 147.

Lib Dem candidate Sandy Walkington keeps his position in St Albans South, with 2,899 votes.

Conservative candidate Richard Curthoys was the closest behind, with 1,299 votes, Green Jack Easton got 191, Labour Jagat Chatrath received 764, and Ukip Peter Whitehead got 121.
