The Fab Four becomes FIVE!!

The Fab FIVE: Cllrs Jessie Jagger, John Rudge, Karen Lawrance, Mel Allcott and Sarah Murray

The Worcester Liberal Democrats were in celebration mode over the weekend after receiving some tremendous results in the City Council elections. 

The party saw their hard work for the residents of Claines recognised with three thumping victories for Councillors Mel Allcott, Jessie Jagger and Karen Lawrance. Coun Mel Allcott also gained the single most votes by any candidate, with 1,798 people putting a tick next to her name.

WLD also saw their efforts in St Nicholas recognised (formerly Warndon Parish North), with Councillor Sarah Murray being re-elected. 

But thanks to his considerable efforts as a Parish Councillor, John Rudge was also elected to join Cllr Murray creating a formidable duo for the area. 

Mel Allcott (who is also standing in the General Election) said the result showed the party was going in the right direction by making sensible moves and slowly moving across the city.

Looking across the wards not everyone wants to make that move from the Tories to Labour and we can offer a home for them, we’re very centrist.

“People can expect to be looked after, we are focused on transport, the environment and housing as well as the NHS which has been neglected for far too long. We will use a democratic approach and listen to our residents, not just tell them what the agenda is.

“We have listened to people and it has worked, the results are in the majority we have in Claines.”

John Renshaw finished 3rd in St Peters ward

Special mention had to go to John Renshaw, who in his third election saw a huge increase in his personal vote seeing him come in third in St Peter’s. 

John said ‘I’m delighted with the increase in my personal vote. The two Lib Dem candidates outpolled the two Conservative candidates in St Peter’s and now move into second place behind the Green Party. That’s real progress.’
