Congratulations to Chris Green who has been elected as the Councillor for the Bunbury Ward. The results are shown below:
The turnout was a rather disappointing 33.4% but this is not untypical of Local Government By-elections. A long established conservative held ward this is a difficult one to crack for any other party. The voting trends are however interesting.
Share of the vote:
Conservative 70% 56.2%
Lib/Dems n/a 29%
Labour 17.7% 14.7%
Greens 12% 5.1%
Clearly the Lib/Dems took votes away from all the other parties and became the second party in Bunbury Ward.
