As the first Seaford council results come in from Seaford town Council by elections the Lib Dems top the polls, electing Dr Maggie Wearmouth as the new Seaford town councillor.
Lib Dem Candidate and local business man Eleas Hussain narrowly missed out to Conservative Terry Goodman, who defected from UKIP.
Retired Paediatrician and GP Maggie Wearmouth was pleased with the vote, saying;
"I'm delighted and honoured to be elected to represent the people of Seaford. I'm looking forward to standing up for people in Seaford Central on local health and transport issues".
Lib Dem Prospective Parliamentary Candidate Kelly-Marie Blundell, who was at the count, welcomed Maggie to the Town Council, saying
"The Lib Dems in Seaford continue to work hard to represent the town, and the result shows we are the only alternative to the Conservatives locally.
"Maggie was a fantastic candidate and will be an even better Councillor, holding the council to account on health, housing and transport links.
"Seaford is the biggest town in the district and yet we receive the lowest support in terms of health and transport. The Lib Dems are the only party standing up for residents of Seaford and demanding we get the services we need."
