So the votes are in and Labour won the By election. They got 765. Janet Brown - Shevington Independents came 2nd with 552, just 213 behind. Last elction we were 400 behind so it is clear we are closing in on Labour and beat the Tories again, even though they worked the ward and did so much and still came 3rd.
Janet would like to Thank all the voters that supporter her and voted in this miserable weather. Turnout was just over 18% so very low.
The next election is in May and Janet and the Shevington Independents will be working hard from now.
Labour were out all day on the council estate getting people to vote. So congratulations to their candidate but May will be a normal election with normal turnout.
