  1. Congratulations to David Boynton but I feel sorry for the defeated Independent candidate; Beate Willard – to get beaten by two votes when standing against someone with the might and resources of a major political party backing them is a very good effort in these days of party dominated local politics. I do not know how many people voted for the party candidates just because of their allegiance but I consider that Village Councillors should be local people with the welfare of the area their prime concern, party politics just develops in-fighting: “Who will be Mayor?” etc.. I would like the council to be non-political.
