Local Election Result
Here in Bassett only 16 votes separated the Liberal Democrats’ Richard Blackman and the Conservatives. Sadly we didn’t win the seat this time, but we will continue working all year round to represent the residents in our area.
Thank you warmly and sincerely for the tremendous support that you gave me at the recent elections to Southampton City Council.
Here in Bassett, we achieved almost 20% increase in our vote share and reduced the Conservative majority to just 16 votes. It was a humbling experience knowing that so many of you had put your trust in me as the Liberal Democrat candidate.
It is clear from the conversations I had with many of you over the recent months that our focus on environmental issues and community facilities, as well as speaking up for our close relationship with the EU, resonated with so many of you.
We are conscious though that there is a lot more for us to do. In the year ahead we are determined to keep working and demanding better for the people of Bassett and Southampton.
