Wakefield MDC has its first Liberal Democrat Councillor for 10 years!

On May 2nd Tom Gordon was elected as Lib Dem Councillor for Knottingley Ward with 1906 votes, a superb 63.1% of the vote.

Adam Belcher standing in Crofton, Ryhill and Walton increased his share of the vote markedly from 11% - 18%.

This year we fielded a further 12 candidates and raised our share of votes for Liberal Democrats across the District.

Thank you to all our candidates - again more than we have had in a long time. Thank you also to so many of you who gave your time, foot leather and so much effort into getting our name and our message across. Liberal Democrats always work better as a team.

In the glow of our success and to provide an opportunity for you to meet our new Councillor as well as get to know other Lib Dems in our area we are having a celebratory get-together - details below. We look forward to seeing you there.
