Chasetown ward residents overwhemingly elected Labour’s Paul Taylor to make it a Labour victory – and a stong voice at Lichfield District.
Paul Taylor, Labour Party, 318 votes and 73.2% of the vote share.
Norma Bacon, Conservative Party, 116 votes and 26.8% of the vote share.
That’s a 15% swing to Labour. So with the full district council elections in May next year, probably the same prime minister, high inflation and further cuts in local services I wouldn’t want to be a Conservative candidate in 2023.
And welcome to Lichfield District Council, Paul!
