Liberal Democrats in South Somerset are pleased to have returned six Councillors to Somerset County Council following yesterday’s local elections. We have more than held our own against a low turnout, this is a very good basis upon which to build a General Election campaign. The hard work of our candidates has led to us winning both UKIP held seats - leaving them with no seats in our area.
Commenting Paddy Ashdown, Chair of Yeovil Liberal Democrats said:
“I would like to thank our many brave and determined candidates, and their teams. Yesterday shows that our support in South Somerset is strong, and that the Liberal Democrats are the only option other than the tories. Our local campaigners were particularly struck by the number of people who told us on the door-step that South Somerset deserved better when it comes to our representation in Parliament and only the Lib Dems can provide this.
Our candidates will work tirelessly at Somerset County Council to represent their constituents and their interests.”
