The Queen Edith’s Lib Dem Focus Team has a new councillor, Cllr Colin McGerty. In yesterday’s City Council elections, Colin polled 1,259 votes to become our new city councillor for the next four years.
Here is the result:
Colin McGerty, Liberal Democrat: 1259 votes (44.2%)
Dan Greef, Labour: 827 votes (29.0%)
Manas Deb, Conservative: 543 votes (19.1%)
Joel Chalfen, Green: (27.7%)
Thank you to everyone who supported Colin and the Liberal Democrats, to our opponents for an honest and high-quality contest, and to the Queen Edith’s Community Forum for another fine hustings event.
Amidst all the excitement of an impending General Election and a metro mayor election, I am working hard defending my county council seat. Elections take place on 4th May.
Tomorrow night, Thursday 20th April, I shall be at St John’s Church for the Queen Edith’s Community Forum’s hustings for the county council elections, along with the three other candidates.
Do come along and ask questions about local issues and hear how we address these on the County Council. The County is responsible for vital services including transport, highways (streetlighting and roads maintenance) social care, health scrutiny, children’s and young people’s service, libraries and heritage.
We Liberal Democrats have published a manifesto for Cambridgeshire, which you can read here.
