May 5th 2022: Great Night for Brentwood Liberal Democrats
It is with great delight that I can report the Brentwood Liberal Democrats had an excellent night on Thursday with gains made in the local elections.
It was our target to ensure that all sitting Councillors won their seats and all did so. Congratulations to Mark Haigh, Phil Mynott, Dominic Naylor and Barry Aspinell in being reelected. A huge vote of confidence in the work that they do.
We also wanted to make gains and we did just that in taking seats in Shenfield and Ingatestone. Well done to Nicky Cuthbert in Shenfield and Darryl Sankey in Ingatestone, Frerning & Mountnessing. These two will make excellent Liberal Democrat Councillors, working for their local communities. Their hard work has ensured that we are closer to our objective of winning overall control of Brentwood.
Commiserations to Brenner Munden who fought so hard but came up just short in South Weald.
Overall we had the most votes in this election across all wards. Totals being:
Lib Dem: 7898
In terms of percentage share that equates to us having 45.1% of the votes compared to 39.6% for the Conservatives and 13.5% for Labour.
The local party wish to record a big thank you to all those who stood, those that organised and all those who contributed to what was a successful campaign.
Thank you to all that voted for us.
