In ToryBear reports that just 173 people voted in the contest, out of an eligible 18,000. Which is a very poor turnout. Cllr. Howlett's first job is to reflect on that low level of identification with CF among younger party members.
Chairman: Cllr. Ben Howlett (Howlett 113, Cox 60)
Deputy Chairman (Membership): Miss Clare Hilley (Hilley 73, Cooper 47)
Deputy Chairman (Political): Miss Alexandra Swann (Swann 139, Khan 33)
Appointed Officer: Mr. James Deighton (Deighton 72, Sullivan 70)
Mr. Harry Cole (aka youth Tory Blogger 'ToryBear') summed up the result saying:
"Two women and a gay guy at the top. Without quotas. Without enforcement, without special patronising identity officers. Eat your heart out Labour.Mr. Giles McNeill said:
"Though the massive drop in turn out needs investigation - someone has cocked up here."
"Had I known that my ballot would have counted as one of only 173 cast, I would probably have taken the whole thing more seriously."
