Local comment - All Change
After an extraordinary meeting of the town council last night we have a new Mayor! Due to a spoilt ballot paper at the last council election the result was declared null and void, and so a new candidate Roger Ballard, was put forward and declared mayor after winning the election against Mansil. This is most unfortunate for Mansil,who was declared mayor 10 days ago and had a lot of plans to put into action.
However I think this is probably the best way forward for Hungerford and HTC as hopefully this will end all the infighting and disarray which has occurred over the past few months and they can now get on with the job with a fresh start.
