Thank you to everyone who supported us in the Tameside council elections on May 4th.
Nearby we gained two seats in Manchester and moved forward in Stockport to be the largest party with 30 of the 63 seats – ahead of Labour on 24 while the Conservatives lost every seat they had on the council.
Nationally 12 more councils now have a Lib Dem majority and we made a net gain of more than 400 councillors across England.
Here in Tameside:
- John Bartley took 363 votes in Ashton St Michael’s ward.
- Rowan Fitton received 358 votes in Droylsden East.
- 378 people supported Peter Ball-Foster in Hyde Newton, beating the Greens into fourth place.
