Sandra Hart - Labour Rose

Sandra Hart has won the Thanet District Council by-election for Dane Valley Ward.
Residents were forced to battle some of the worst weather of the year to get out and vote due to a bungled and drawn out Conservative resignation that pushed the election date way back into bleak mid-winter.
Sandra Hart said "I'd like to thank everyone who made the effort to vote, especially those who turned out on such an extremely cold, wet and windy December day.
After the events of the past two years the residents of Dane Valley ward now deserve strong representation at TDC and I will certainly do my very best for them. I am fortunate to join a large group of Labour councillors with enormous experience and I know that as a team they will support all my efforts".
Labour Group Leader & Campaign Organiser - Cllr. Clive Hart said "My Sandy was a first class candidate and I know she'll make an excellent councillor.
This election was my first real test as the Leader of Thanet Labour Group and I was very proud of the way our members campaigned. We fought a very clean fight with no mud-slinging whatsoever on our part and the residents of Dane Valley ward responded positively. I thank them sincerely for their support".
