Kirsten Johnson, Parliamentary Spokesperson for the North Devon Liberal Democrats, congratulated Elisha George on her election to Barnstaple Town Council for Forches Ward.
Kirsten says, "Elisha is young, enthusiastic and willing to work hard for her community. I am thrilled she has been elected to Barnstaple Town Council. Elisha is ready to get stuck into casework and making a difference for local residents. Liberal Democrats are community champions and fighting hard for a fairer society in North Devon. This begins at the grass-roots, and people like Ellie George, representing the ward where she lives, can make a real difference."
Elisha George says, "I am overwhelmed to have been elected. Local politics is something that has always been close to my heart and I truly hope that I can make a difference within the community that I am very proud to be a part of."
In a three way race, Elisha gained almost 53% of the votes cast.
