Congratulations to Councillor Phillip Brightmore
Yesterday’s council by-election in Pensby and Thingwall Ward saw Labour Candidate Phillip Brightmore elected, following the resignation of Conservative Councillor Don McCubbin.
Cllr. Brightmore is, I think, the first member of Wirral Young Labour to be elected to the Council. Congratulations to him on his victory and commiserations to Conservative Candidate Sheila Clarke and Liberal Democrat Damien Cummins.
The full result was:
- Phillip Brightmore (Labour): 1,411
- Sheila Clarke (Conservative): 868
- Damien Cummins (Liberal Democrat): 834
- Jan Davison (UKIP): 426
- Allen Burton (Green): 74
Labour majority of 543
