Lichfield local elections 2019

Paul Ray, Councillor for Chadsmead Ward

A councillor on Lichfield City and District Councils for Chadsmead ward, Paul Ray was elected in a by-election in February 2016 and re-elected in May 2019.

In May 2019 he was joined by an extra 7 Lib Dem councillors on Lichfield City Council for Chadsmead, Leomansley, Stowe and St John's Ward. Lichfield Lib Dems have shown themselves in the May 19 elections to be the main challengers to The controlling Conservatives in Lichfield City and also had a strong second place in Mease Ward. Also within Lichfield & Burntwood parliamentary constituency Derek Lord was placed immediately after the two winning Conservatives in Needwood ward in East Staffs with another good vote - well done!

    Boris Johnson's government has set out a disastrous agenda which will force through a hard Brexit, undermine our public services, destroy opportunities for our communities and cripple living standards.

    Brexit will hinder our ability to safeguard our NHS and reduce our capacity to tackle the climate crisis.

    The fact that radical climate action has been ignored is a hallmark of a government which is setting all the wrong priorities.

    Not good news for the Lib Dems nationally. Though the vote share rose from 7.4% to 11.5%, sadly the number of Lib Dem MPs fell by one, Jo Swinson's seat, compared to the situation after the 2017 election.

    But locally the outcome was better. In Tamworth our vote share slightly increased, and more than doubled in Burton and Lichfield. In the latter Paul Ray's vote share rose to 10.8%.
