Philip Eades and Marion Le Poidevin are pleased to have been re-elected as Councillors for Branksome West.
In what was a very difficult night for the Liberal Democrats both nationally and locally Phil and Marion are very grateful to the residents of Branksome West for showing their faith in their record of work for the area. This is Phil’s 4th election victory and Marion’s 2nd.
“I'd like to thank everyone who showed their support by voting for us. We will continue to work for all residents to get the best we can for them and this area, following this vote of confidence in us,” says Marion Le Poidevin.
Phil says “Unfortunately the local elections saw a massive swing to the right and the Conservatives now hold 32 of the 42 seats on the Borough of Poole. They have wasted no time in excluding all opposition members from chairing scrutiny committees and it will prove very difficult for us to provide effective opposition with such small numbers. It is vitally important that local residents contact us as soon as they see service cuts or price rises occurring. We can only successfully challenge if we know at an early stage what the ruling Tories are doing behind closed doors at the Civic Centre.”
