Local Elections – Thank you for your Support

Just to thank residents across Bury for their support in the local elections last week.

Our two best results were in Holyrood Ward, where we took a seat from Labour:

Steve Wright (LIB DEM)1,733
Labour 1,463
Conservative 280
UKIP 229
Green 139

and in St Mary’s Ward where we lost by 19, but cut Labour’s majority down from 892 last year:

Labour 1,349
Michael Powell (LIB DEM)1,330
Conservative 463
Green 126

Lib Dem Group Leader, Cllr Tim Pickstone said:
“A huge thank you to voters in Prestwich, who have sent a very clear message that we are fed up with the way we are treated by the Labour-run Council. We’re gutted we didn’t quite make it in St Mary’s Ward, but coming so close is a great foundation for the future. We will continue to be working hard for local residents, all-year-round.”

Results for the whole of Bury are here.
