      07 May 2021 - Conservatives retain local   division with reduced majority
David   Brazier was reelected councillor for the Sevenoaks Rural North East Division (Hartley,   New Ash Green, West Kingsdown) of Kent County Council with a greatly reduced   majority of 1,255 in an election that saw a 21 per cent swing to the Green   Party.  Turnout was up 4% at 34%.  The experience of this writer is that only   the Green Party appeared to have campaigned, I received 2 leaflets from the   Greens and none from the other parties.    Hartley has 2 other county councillors, Conservative husband and wife   Perry and Penny Cole won Swanley and Dartford East for the party, perhaps the   party has trouble finding local candidates in some areas.

The result   was:
David Brazier (Cons) 2,887 (59%, -19%)
Laura Manston   (Green) 1,632 (33%, +23%)
Ian Rashbrook (Lab) 572 (8%, -4%).  

Overall the Conservatives have   lost a little ground at Kent County Council, but their majority is not seriously   threatened, overall a very good night for the Greens.  The new council is Cons 61 (-6), Lab  7 (+2), Lib Dem 6 (-1), Green 5 (+3),   Residents 2 (+1), Vacant 1.
