Statement on the East Brighton by-election


Statement from Conservative Group Leader – Cllr. Geoffrey Theobald – on the result of yesterday’s East Brighton by-election:

“We offer our congratulations toChaun Wilson on being elected to Brighton & Hove City Council. However, this is a very good result for us in what is a Labour stronghold. We were third in the 2011 elections in this ward and came second yesterday so we are very pleased, especially as Labour put everything into holding onto the seat. Our candidate, Joe Miller, did exceptionally well and has a great future ahead of him. As they were in the recent Westbourne by-election, the Green Party were pushed into third place, which reinforces the view of the electorate that they are doing a poor job of running the city.”
