Wednesfield North Labour Party – Ward Party Secretary’s Report May 2018.

Councillor Phil Bateman said “As part of my Secretary’s Report – I  reported on the City Councils election result – 4 May 2018 – The Labour Party was a clear winner in the City of Wolverhampton. : The Labour Party once again controls the City with 51 seats against the Conservatives 9. A third of the City Council was up for election,  the  turn out on election day averaged 28 per cent.” 

Wednesfield North – Here in our Ward of Wednesfield North, Mary Bateman the Labour candidate won with 1242 votes that is 60.31% of the votes cast. That is a massive endorsement for Mary and her campaign. She also increased the size of her vote from 1192 in her last election in 2014 to 1242 which is 50 more votes in total. 

The last time Mary stood in 2014 she had a majority of 234 votes over UKIP who had finished second…

This time Mary increased her majority to 493 votes over the Conservative Party who this time finished second in our Ward. That is a massive 47% increase in Labours Majority over all the other Party’s contesting the 2018 election. 

It is disappointing that the overall vote was down across the Ward, but you cannot take away Mary’s result, which was very positive and gives her a marvellous mandate from the electors in our Ward
