Greens Celebrate Success Across Derbyshire in 2022
Green campaigners in Derbyshire are celebrating the election of two more councillors – Jamie Walls in Belper South and Alison McDermott in Duffield.
Jamie and Alison join Dave Wells to make three borough councillors on Amber Valley Borough Council.
Greens in Derby City have also had great results – standing 10 candidates, their highest number ever, representing wards all around the city. Candidates stood for the first time in Chaddesden, Chellaston, Littleover and Mickleover and voters across the wards thanked us for having the option to vote Green for the first time.
I want to thank the voters in Mackworth who cast their vote for me on Thursday. We’ve come from a standing start and increased our vote by 18% despite both the Labour and Tory parties pulling out all the stops against us.Sam Ward, candidate for Mackworth Ward
