Good news from the one council by-election tonight.
Congratulations Councillor Gemma Massey:

“Local Lib Dem councillors like Adam Paynter and Jade Farrington have an excellent track record of standing up for the town. Like them, I wish to fight for Launceston,” she said…
The by-election was caused by the resignation in November of Cornwall Council’s former finance chief Alex Folkes. [Cornish Guardian]
That cause of the by-election made this a particularly tricky defence.
