Success in Oxfordshire County Council Elections 2013!
LAURA PRICE won for Labour and Cooperative in Witney South and Central on May 2nd. This is the first time in 8 years we have had a Labour County Councillor to represent Witney, Laura will be a great councillor for the people in her division, and a great representative for Labour, Cooperative, and the values we all share. The victory marks another great success for Labour in West Oxfordshire following the three seats gained on the District Council in May 2012.
For more details of Labours successes across the County in the 2013 elections see the OCC website.
Following the sad death of Rob Evans, District Councillor for Chipping Norton, there was a by-election on November 7th. The Labour and Co-operative candidate, Geoff Saul, a local solicitor, won by over 300 votes, on a small swing to Labour compared with the last District Council election. This means there are again 4 Labour councillors on the District Council, challenging the Conservative dominance.
