GROWING GREEN: Greens take Lib Dem seat in St Albans by-election result

 Published on: 17th June 2023   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

A recent council by-election has seen the Greens in St Albans gain another elected official in the city.

Despite the recent local elections on May 4, a by-election in the St Peters ward was called following the resignation of Liberal Democrat councillor Danny Clare, meaning residents of that ward once again took to the polls on Tuesday, June 13.

With the Greens feeling bolstered by recent results, which saw them gain a second seat on St Albans City & District Council in the Clarence ward, the party saw success once more with candidate and now councillor, Juliet Voisey.

Cllr Voisey won the polls with 628 votes, with Lib Dem challenger David Partridge getting 537, Conservative candidate Ambrose Killen getting 156 and Labour contender David Byatt getting 84.

The result now sees the unified Green and Independent group on the city council become the joint-second largest on there with the Tories.

Juliet has been a resident of St Albans for 17 years with her husband and three children and has been active in the local Greenpeace branch.

Fellow Green councillor Simon Grover said: “Juliet is a genuine, hard-working campaigner who knows how to get the job done. She already works with me here in St Peter’s ward and will be a brilliant addition to the council.”
