Congratulations to the Councillors elected yesterday

I send my best wishes to the Councillors elected yesterday in the Wokingham Borough Council elections. There were a range of important matters raised by people on the doorsteps when I was out with candidates. I look forward to working with the new Council on dealing with the outstanding issues which include  A329M traffic management, the handling of construction and development in Emmbrook  and the future use of Elms Field in Wokingham.

The combined vote share of candidates in Wokingham constituency Borough seats saw the Conservatives take 45% of the vote and the Liberal Democrats 33%. The Liberal Democrats won Hawkedon and Winnersh, the Conservatives won the other seats.

    Just to note, Andy Croy won Bulmershe and Whitegates for Labour too.

      Andy Croy isnt in Wokingham Constituency (although he lives in leafy Wokingham miles away from the ward he represents I am told). Conservatives also won Charvil from Independent and Loddon from Liberals.

        Bulmershe and Whitegates is in the Wokingham Borough, and I’m not entirely sure that where Andy lives is all that crucial.

        I’m not a Labour supporter, my comment was purely one of clarity.

        That said, Andy is a good guy and will make a superb councillor.
