Your LOCAL Liberal Democrat Community Champions have won two seats in Havant Borough council.
The Liberal Democrats are smashing that Blue Wall! Local Lib Dem community champions Paul Gray and Philippa Gray have both won a seat at this year’s local elections for the Havant Borough Council.
Paul Gray, who stood in his home ward, Hayling West, won with a majority of 815 votes. His 1,718 votes are a sure sign of support for him on Hayling Island.
Meanwhile, in Bedhampton, Philippa Gray won with 782 votes, 20 more than the Conservative candidate, who had been a councillor for a number of years. This is a sure sign that every vote matters in any election and with under 28% of the electorate voting, this enforces our views that people feel like they have not been heard by the current Tory-led council.
Philippa, who has lived in Bedhampton for more than 30 years, had to wait through a nerve-wracking period as the votes were checked before the result was announced.
I am honoured to have been elected to represent the people of Bedhampton on Havant Borough Council. I look forward to making a real difference in our area” I can go on (and on and on) if you need more than this.Cllr Philippa Gray
Both Paul and Philippa are looking forward to being able to speak out at council meetings and provide some much-needed opposition against the Tory led council.
