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!

    So says Paul Ray Lib Dem General Election candidate

    "The Liberal Democrats' position on Brexit is crystal clear. We are the strongest party of Remain. The Conservatives want to lead us over the Brexit cliff. That brings economic disaster with massive job losses, worsening of the staffing crisis in the NHS and social care since these sectors are so reliant on EU workers, the break-up of the UK….
