Lib Dem candidate for Devon council
THE losing Liberal Democrat candidate in last year's Police Commissioner election will try for a seat on Devon County Council in May.
Brian Blake is one of three Lib Dem candidates for county council seats in South West Devon. He will contest Yealmpton.
The party has also put up Sue Bridgwater as its candidate for Wembury-Bickleigh and Jon May for the Ivybridge contest.
Constituency chair Mark Lawrence said: "The voters have three top Lib Dem candidates to vote for. They will all make excellent county councillors. The local party had to make a choice about who to select and I am pleased that we have gone for three excellent people from a high quality field."
