Daventry Town Council confirms Councillors for 2018

Following the elections that took place in Daventry on Thursday 3rd May 2018, Daventry Town Council is pleased to confirm its newly elected Council. Out of the seven wards in the Town of Daventry Parish, six were uncontested. Abbey South had three candidates and therefore went to public vote on 3rd May.

The number of votes recorded for each Candidate standing for Abbey South were as follows:
Dawn Branigan – 555 (Elected)

Scott Greig – 339

Malcolm Ogle – 458 (Elected)

There were 887 ballot papers issued, resulting in a turnout of 32.3% from Daventry Town residents. There were 38 ballots rejected; two were rejected for voting for more Candidates than the voter was entitled to; and 36 were rejected for being unmarked or wholly void for uncertainty.

The full list of Councillors for each ward in Daventry Town are therefore as follows:

Abbey Central: Alan Knape and Aiden Ramsey

Abbey North: Karen Tweedale

Abbey South: Dawn Brannigan and Malcolm Ogle

Ashby Fields: Rebecca Helm and Mark Wesley

Daneholme: Ted Nicholl

Drayton: Ron Fox, Lynn Jones, Peter Luke, Wendy Randall and Lynne Taylor
