Congratulations to Richard Foord, the Lib Dems and progressive voters on a fantastic victory!
I’ve issued the following statement as Chair of the East Devon Alliance:
‘The East Devon Alliance of Independents warmly congratulates Richard Foord on his election as Tiverton and Honiton’s new MP and the Liberal Democrats on their excellent campaign. This historic victory results from a progressive alliance among voters this part of Devon which has seen many Labour, Green and Independent voters backing Richard. I and other members of the East Devon Alliance of Independents are proud to have played a part in his success and look forward to working with the Lib Dems and all opposition forces in the new era for Devon politics which it opens up.’
