Dennis Lewis, former long-standing Conservative councillor, is backing LibDem Malcolm Cowan in the Handside and Peartree county council election. He says
"Although I was a Conservative councillor for many years, I shall be supporting Malcolm this year because he has done a good job and is passionate about improving standards.
He cares as passionately about the town as I do."
Malcolm Cowan says "I am very pleased, proud and honoured to have Dennis's support. He has worked hard for WGC for nearly half a century and is widely respected in the town. I know from going round, that many other Conservatives take the view that my work deserves their support."
