Thank you for your support in the May local elections!
Across Basildon & Thurrock we saw an increase in the number of Liberal Democrat candidates on Ballot papers.
We came close in Billericay West to electing a Liberal Democrat Councillor onto Basildon Council. Our candidate, Edward Sainsbury, had a phenomenal 39% increase in vote share on the previous year's results in 2018!
Our sincere thanks to all those that voted for the Liberal Democrats. This year was the start of a revival of Liberal politics in the two Boroughs and there's plenty more to come!
Conservatives had a bad night, losing seats and control of Basildon Council.
We won't take your support for granted. We never will. We will continue to campaign on the issues that matter to local people and speak out against decisions made in the council chamber that have a detrimental impact on our area and the people in our communities.
