Farnley & Wortley Success Brings Double Celebration

Today’s announcement of Cllr Ann Blackburn’s re-election brought a double celebration for the Blackburn family as the count was held on David’s 60th birthday. Standing in the Farnley & Wortley ward, Ann Blackburn polled an excellent 2995 votes, a 47% share. Her nearest opponent, Labour’s Stewart McKenna, polled 2353 around 37% of the vote. The Conservatives claimed 769, while the Liberal Democrats were last with 199 votes.

Cllr Ann Blackburn said of the result:

“I’d like to say thank you to the dedicated team who helped me, and to the people of Farnley and Wortley for their continued support. It was lovely on the day to have people coming along giving me the thumbs up and seeing the Green Party posters in people’s windows. You get a continuous buzz from people’s support. The idea is to have someone in the ward who they know and works hard for them. That’s the key. But it was a good clean campaign between the candidates and a lot of work went into it. I look forward to carrying on doing my best for the people of Farnley and Wortley.”

Elsewhere the other Farnley & Wortley Green Party candidates returned improved figures. Jane Morrison in Armley polled 748 (13.7%), Kate Bisson polled 514 (10%) in Bramley & Stanningley, and Morgan Tatchell-Evans polled 527 (9.35%) in Kirkstall.

Farnley & Wortley Green Party would like to thank you for your support.
