Lib Dem candidate Mark Lithgow has been elected as the new town councillor in the Wellington by-election.” I would like to thank the people of Wellington North who have come out in support of me in the by-election,” said Lithgow. “This by-election was due to the sad passing of the late Gloria Copley, who was a marvellous town councillor. I will work very hard to carry on all the good work that Gloria did over many years.”
“I feel honoured and humbled to be chosen to represent the people of Wellington. I have already received messages wishing me well and good fortune whilst carrying out my councillor duties.
“I am very much looking forward to working together with the other councillors to ensure that Wellington is not the neglected part of Taunton Deane and that matters that affect Wellington and are within the gift of Wellington Town Council are addressed in a collaborative way, thus ensuring Wellington has a fairer and louder voice in Taunton Deane.
“I wish to pass on my regards to Robin Dickinson, who was the Conservative candidate standing for the Wellington North seat. I do hope he continues to offer his experience in helping making Wellington a better place for all of us to live.”
