Yesterday, Emma Morley was elected as Dartford Labour's Newest Councillor.

Winning with an impressive 70% of the vote, Emma will represent St Johns Ward on Stone Parish Council. 

The election was called because Dave Baker, the previous parish councillor for St Johns, sadly passed away in May. Dave was a lovely man and a fantastic advocate for local people. He will be greatly missed. 

The turnout for the election was 15% and the full result is available at http://www.dartfordlabourparty.org.uk/recent_election_results

On her victory, Emma said:

"I'm over the moon to be elected as one of your Parish councillors for St John's ward, Stone.


Thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for me, and those that helped with my campaign.


I have huge boots to fill following the lovely Dave Baker and I hope I can do him proud.


I can't wait to get started!"
