The Camborne and Redruth Branch will be celebrating this weekend after voters elected their third Cornwall Councillor in the parliamentary constituency.
Dr Loveday Jenkin was elected yesterday with over 36% of the vote in a by-election for Wendron following the sudden death of Independent Councillor Mike Clayton. In her post on Facebook following the announcement of the results late last night Cllr Jenkin said:
"Now the hard work starts! Who's standing for MK in the next by-election?"
Originally from Leedstown, Cllr Jenkin knows the ward intimately and was the obvious choice for Councillor. MK is the party that people are increasingly turning towards, as the only party that works for the people by the people and able to put Cornwall first.
The results of the election were:
L Dem 22.3%
