Winning in Cox Green

Posted by davidburbage on December 14, 2014


Cllr Ross McWilliams

Ross McWilliams (pictured) won the Cox Green by-election on Thursday 11th December by a good margin. The result was very convincing – we polled over half the votes in a four way contest.

Names of Candidates Description Votes Recorded (E): Elected
Carter, Lance Graham UK Independence Party (UKIP) 278
Horner, Robert Labour Party Candidate 124
Jones, Gareth Peter Liberal Democrats 315
McWilliams, Ross Charles Conservative Party 738 E
Spoilt papers 2

We chose not to use this head shot because I said it looked a bit “cheeky” but given his win, I thought it would be worth showing now!

The LibDems tried really hard, put out surveys and at two pieces of literature, tried to make campaign issues of the Highfield Lane bridge, the leisure centres and other points but Ross was across all of these. Having been born and brought up in Cox Green, his local knowledge and the number of people who knew him really helped ensure his success, and will make representing the community much easier.

Well done Ross!
