Voters go to polls

POLLS took place yesterday (Thursday) in the Oxfordshire County Council election.

POLLS took place yesterday (Thursday) in the Oxfordshire County Council election.

Six candidates stood for the new single ward for Henley created after the Local Government Boundary Commission scrapped the town’s two wards to help reduce the size of the county council.

Former Henley Mayor Ken Arlett stood for the UK Independence Party against candidates from his old party, Henley Residents’ Group, as well as the Conservatives, Liberal Democrats, Labour and the Green Party.

The HRG candidate was Deputy Mayor Stefan Gawrysiak, a former assistant headteacher at Gillotts School, who was elected to the town council in April 2011.

The Conservative candidate was David Nimmo Smith, who is a former mayor and has been a county councillor since 2005 and a town councillor since 1983. The Green Party candidate was Whitchurch Parish Council chairman Peter Dragonetti and Labour was represented by Veronica Treacher.

Voting was also taking place in Sonning Common, Goring, Chalgrove and Watlingon, and Benson and Cholsey.

Votes were being counted today (Friday) with results expected by late afternoon.
