Update on election results – Laura Protheroe Bristol Unison Labour Link Officer
The election results were fantastic news for Labour in Bristol. We now have a new Labour mayor Marvin Rees who won with 63% of the vote.
The webcast of the announcement is available.
Labour won 37 out of 70 council seats and now has a majority. The webcast of the announcements are available. We now have 17 new Labour councillors. Full results can be found on council website. However, we are sorry that some Labour councillors – Mike Wollacott, Eileen Means and Bill Payne lost their seats despite working extremely hard and putting a huge amount of effort into serving local people in their wards.
Sue Mountstephens was re-elected as Police and Crime Commissoner and Kerry Barker the Labour candidate came second.
More news will follow about Marvin Rees’s activities.
