The by-election in Westbury and Henleaze on 24th May is expected to be close. Liberal Democrat campaigner Graham Donald is fighting hard to succeed popular Lib Dem councillor and former Lord Mayor Clare Campion-Smith.
Graham says, “This by-election is likely to be a close call between Teresa May’s Tory candidate and myself – with Labour and the Green Party far behind as they were in the city council election in 2016. I have the same commitment to working for all residents that Clare and her predecessors had."
Graham and his team have been visiting residents in their homes to find out the issues that really matter to them and discuss the forthcoming by-election. Many Labour and Green supporters don’t want a third Tory councillor for Westbury and Henleaze and are voting for Graham to ensure that a range of views are represented. Conservatives are impressed by Graham’s record as a local campaigner and have noticed that the Liberal Democrats keep in touch with them all year round, not just at election times.
