BANISTER Lynda Liberal Democrat 1615
Turn out - 82.43% Liberal Democrat Hold
I look forward to working with Lynda on the City Council on behalf of the residents of Oliver's Battery and Badger Farm.
I am, however, deeply saddened by the loss of our parliamentary seat to the Tories. Martin Tod was a fantastic candidate and local campaigner who worked so hard for the people of this constituency. He would have been a worthy successor to Mark Oaten and a real asset in parliament. We won't take this defeat lying down. Winchester will be Liberal Democrat again, in parliament as well as in the Guildhall.
