Triple Tory Boost from Lib Dem Defection

A Lib Dem Councillor from West Sussex has given the Conservatives a boost by defecting. Cllr Heidi Brunsdon has had enough of the Lib Dems that she joined as a Cllr in 2007. As well as being a County Councillor she is also a Mid Sussex District Councillor and on East Grinstead Town Council. So Conservatives on each authority will receive a boost!

Cllr Brunsdon said “it is an exciting time to be a Conservative. I found that my politics has matured and I found myself at odds with the party I had chosen in 2007.” She runs her own public relations company and no doubt her skills will be a great advantage to the local Conservatives.

Welcome Heidi!

  1. Sorry to lose Mrs Brunsdon , she has been a thorn in the side of the ruling Conservative groups on Mid Sussex and West Sussex councils . Still there are 4 byelections on May 6th in Mid Suusex and 1 in West Sussex on the same day all in Conservative seats and they will see at least 2 LibDem gains .

  2. Oddly enough I would have thought that it was a particularly exciting time to be a Liberal !

  3. A sensible woman but I wonder if she is rueing her timing?
