The Conservative Party managed to take all six Tamworth Divisions in the County Council Elections.
The closest contest was in Amington, with the Conservative candidate beating Labour by just 15 votes.
This is the first time that The Green Party have contested all six Divisions in Tamworth, with Conservative, Labour and UKIP also contesting all six Divisions and the Lib Dems standing in three.
Whilst the Green Party candidates did well and maintained our base level support of around 4% of the vote, it was clear from the results that our share of the vote was lower in the Divisions contested by the Lib Dems. This is something that we need to consider for future elections.
The most visible trend identified was the drastic reduction in UKIP’s share of the vote which appears to have moved to the Conservatives.
Thank you to our candidates for their efforts, especially Lesley and Wil who were first time candidates.
