Lib Dem Byelection Victory!

For the last few weeks along with many colleagues I've been working to ensure a Liberal Democrat victory in the Winchester City Council byelection in Colden Common & Twyford. We had an excellent candidate in Daryl Henry but a very strong challenge from the Conservatives. The byelection was today and this was the result:

Liberal Democrat (Daryl Henry) 1180 54.1%

Conservative 935 43%

Labour 64 2.9%

LD Majority 242 votes (up 66 on May 2008)
Swing 1.4% Conservative to Liberal Democrat
Turnout 51%

An excellent victory for Daryl who will be a great councillor for her ward. This is the fourth local election in a row in the Winchester District in which the Liberal Democrat vote has risen and the Tory vote fallen.
