Interesting Elections 4: Willingham

Shona Johnstone's old seat of Willingham as Ray Manning looks to take over the seat. Cllr Manning already has a job as Leader of South Cambs DC (Council Tax rise= 4.8%).

Shona had a bit of a problem with being found guilty of criminal damage. This gave her trouble with standing for Police Commissioner. This didn't happen. It will be interesting to see whether the Liberal Democrats can put up a candidate and fight to win this seat. UKIP could also take a load of vote from the Conservatives.
