HP Polling day result

Mike Williamson won the HP by-election with just over 54% of the vote. Well done to Mike.

Graham Rees polled 22% for the Conservatives, while Victor Clements polled just over 12% for the Lib Dems.

Willie Leszke polled a very commendable 10% as an Independent, while the other Independent Chris Rennie got just over 1%.

Video: Having a laugh with Cooncillor Bob

Here is a nice little video of Tina with Councillor Bob Ellis at Blair Atholl on polling day. Bob was easily the nicest Nat we met all day, and is definitely a Liberal at heart. Well done Bob. Good stuff.

Our signs are lying on the ground because the very nice (but very strict) returning officer would'nt allow us to place them against the building, and Bob would'nt allow us to lean them against the SNP boards!

One of the responses to our resident's survey was the very poor standard of maintenance in Aberfeldy graveyard (pics below). The issue ws taken to the council and in less than a week, all the trees and weeds between the gravestones have been cleared away, the grass mown properly and the whole place looks a lot better.

Residents' surveys work!!

And again....

At the top of Glenlyon

Here are a few photos from Glenlyon today, plus another few out and about on the Tay on Friday. You can see here that water is being released from the dam. There is a short video of this below.

It took me about six hours to get up here and canvass houses on the way back down the glen.

None of the othr candidates had been yet.......

All roads converge on Pitlochry

All the candidates in the HP by-election seemed to be in Pitlochry today (except for Willie Leszke of course who is in America). We covered Blair Atholl, Ballinluig, Balnaguard, Grandtully and Aberfeldy as well, getting out 1115 letters to postal voters.

Well done to all concerned. Great effort folks.
