Local Election Results

Looking at the bigger picture in Warwickshire the results last night were not good for Labour having lost 12 Councillors. It is incredibly disappointing also to lose June Tandy. We must bear in mind that Local Elections have considerably low turnout when compared to General Elections and that people are more likely to vote outside of the main parties. The main factor for the rise in votes for the Tories is clearly due to the collapse in the UKIP vote and their hard Brexit agenda. Nevertheless we are grateful for the support we had from members and our activists should be incredibly proud for a hard fought, positive campaign and we look now to hold the Tories in Warwickshire to account over the next 4 years. These results make us even more determined to campaign for Bally Singh, our parliamentary candidate on June the 8th and fight the austerity agenda the Tories put forward. The results were as follows:

Total Seats

57

Total seats by party

Conservative 36
Green 2
Independent 0
Labour 10
Labour and Cooperative 0
Liberal Democrats 7

The results for our candidates in Southam and Kenilworth specifically were as follows:

In Lapworth and West Kenilworth Josh Payne came third with 246 votes behind the Lib Dems in second and the Tory cnadidate, John Cooke being elected.

In Kenilworth Park Hill Audrey Mullender came third with 390 votes behind the Lib Dems in second and the Tory candidate, Dave Shilton being elected.

In Kenilworth St. John’s Wallace McDowell came third with 378 votes behind the Lib Dems in second and the Tory candidate, Alan Lancaster being elected.
