Borough Election Summary

In all the excitement of the General Election on 7th May, it is easy to overlook the fact that borough council elections took place at the same time in ten wards.

Tamworth Greens fielded its biggest ever number of candidates this time and all six – John Scattergood, Harry Yendell, Simon Johnson, Sarah Walters, Lisa Crane & Nicola Holmes – wish to pass on their thanks to all who supported us.

The candidates all received approx 4-5% of the vote in each of the six wards, which were all contested by Conservative, Labour and UKIP.

The Bolehall Ward was contested for the first time by Green Party candidate Harry Yendell.

Results in Tamworth mirrored national trends with the Conservatives strengthening their grip on the Borough Council.

Tamworth Green Party remains staunchly against the Bedroom Tax, against Zero Hours Contracts, against HS2 and against Privatisation within the NHS.
