A big thank you to everyone who supported me, and to my opponents for a good campaign. It was looking close but we worked very hard in the last few days and it paid off.
Congratulations also to Lib Dem Helen-Foster Grime who won in Cheadle Hulme South, and Labour’s David Meller, who won Cheadle Hulme North by just two votes.
Across Stockport, Labour remain the largest party with the Lib Dems a close second. It’s most likely that Labour will continue running Stockport Council. Thanks to the election of two Green councillors in Trafford, the Conservatives lost control and Labour are now the largest party their too – by just one seat.
Nationally the elections were good for the Lib Dems who gained more seats than any other party, and more councils too. The Lib Dems gained control of four councils across England.
