Crown Ward By-Election Results

June 8, 2018 7:00 PM

Crown ward is on the edge of Staffordshire, south of the River Dove. It covers the villages of Hanbury, Draycott and Marchington. The by-election in this safe Conservative seat was caused by the resignation of the previous councillor. Once again, the Conservatives held the seat.

This was the first time this century the Liberal Democrats stood a candidate in Crown ward. The party managed to deliver a leaflet to almost all of this very spread out ward. Many thanks to those who were generous with their time. The response on the doorstep was fairly encouraging and that was reflected in a promising result, almost taking second place in a previously uncontested area.

The results in full:

Conservative Gordon Marjoram 76.1% (-3.2)

Labour William Walker 12.1% (-8.5)

Liberal Democrat Michael Pettingale 11.8% (+11.8)
