Southend Labour gained three seats in the council elections on 22 May, giving the party a total of nine.

 

Cheryl Nevin gained Milton Ward from the Conservatives and in Westborough Ward both Kevin Robinson and Mike Royston gained seats from the Independent and Liberal Democrats.

 

Elsewhere, Councillor Margaret Borton was re-elected in Victoria Ward and Labour came very close to gaining Kursaal Ward from the Conservatives and maintained a good second place in St.Luke's Ward. In the Rochford Council elections, Jerry Gibson was elected with a majority of 58 - a superb result for a Labour Party Candidate there.

 

All Labour candidates across the town would like to say thank you for the support they received.

 

Southend Council is now a 'hung council' with no party in overall control.  Whatever administration is formed in the coming days to run the council, Labour councillors will work to maintain local services to the best of their ability in the face of continued cuts imposed by the Conservative and Lib Dem government.
