The Lib Dems retain control of Mole Valley District Council following a successful local election campaign. This reflects public confidence in the work our team has been doing over the last two years and means we can continue our progressive agenda for the benefit of all residents.
Welcome to three new Liberal Democrat District councillors - Chris Coghlan (Dorking North), Rosemary Hobbs (Holmwoods) and Nick Wright (Dorking South). Congratulations to them and a huge thank you to Paul Elderton, Wayne Monkman and Tim Loretto, who stood down at this election after many years of collective service to the Mole Valley communities. They brought great credit to the local Liberal Democrats.
We also held our seats on Surrey County Council with longstanding County Councillors, Hazel Watson (Dorking Hills) and Stephen Cooksey (Dorking South & Holmwoods) both increasing their majorities - fantastic results and a testament to the work they do for our residents day in, day out.
Support for the LibDems continues to grow with an increased share of the vote in almost every District Ward and County Division, consolidating our lead in Mole Valley and auguring well for elections to come. Thank you to all the candidates who fought hard and, in several cases, only missed out by a few votes.
Mole Valley District Councillor, Paul Kennedy, also achieved a great result in the race for Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner, only losing out to the Conservatives when the Surrey-wide 2nd preference ballots were counted. Paul won the vote in Mole Valley convincingly and is one of only two Lib Dem candidates in the UK ever to make it to Round 2 in PCC elections.
