Local elections 2012: Results

Number of councillors on Stockport Council for each party

Stockport Liberal Democrats are extending a ‘thank you’ to residents for their support following the local elections this month.

Councillor Sue Derbyshire was re-elected in Manor ward with more than 44% of the vote, although with just a 24 vote majority over Labour.

Sue was also elected by her fellow councillors to become Leader of the Council.  Liberal Democrats remain the largest party in Stockport.

Following the vote, Sue thanked Stockport residents and reaffirmed her commitment to making sure Stockport Council keeps delivering excellent services in the borough.

In Davenport and Cale Green ward Ann Smith received a record 13% swing from Labour’s 2011 result.  Although Ann lost her seat on the Council in a narrow win for Labour, Ann has promised to keep on campaigning in the area.

Labour’s councillors for the ward live as far away as Reddish and Woodley.  Ann has promised to keep campaigning in the area to make sure Labour’s councillors don’t take voters for granted.
