Local Election Results

Thank you to everyone who went out and voted Labour yesterday. I haven’t been to bed yet - having been up at 530am yesterday to campaign and spent all night at the count. Our hard work paid off with 51 Labour councillors returned across Redbridge - a record! In Ilford North we won Aldborough, Barkingside, Clayhall, Fullwell and Hainault, as well as a seat each in South Woodford and Churchfields. We’ll be back out on the doorstep soon to keep in touch, help with local issues and we’ll keep our promises to deliver results for Redbridge.

Politics can be a rough business and I want to pay tribute to those councillors who aren’t returning to Redbridge this time. On my own side, I want to pay special tribute to Lloyd Duddridge - Councillor for Roding Ward. He came within a dozen votes of winning in Bridge, but it wasn’t to be. Lloyd has been a first class councillor and I know he’ll be back, but Redbridge Council will be poorer without him in the meantime.

I also want to pay special tribute to Conservative councillors Robert Cole, Michelle Dunn, Ashley Kissin, Nick Hayes, Matthew Chaudhary and the institution that is Alan Weinberg, as well as the Lib Dems’ Gwyneth Deakins, Ian Bond and Hugh Cleaver who have each given distinguished service to our Borough. We may not always agree, but they have been dedicated public servants, they’re good people and I have the utmost respect for them. Thanks to all those leaving the Council at this election.

Thanks to everyone who went out to vote - and all those who run the elections.

There’s lots to work on to make our Borough a better place. I’m confident our new councillors will do a cracking job - after a bit of sleep! See me talk about the election results here.
