“Thank you to all those who voted for me on 6th May. We were only 89 votes from winning and I am disappointed not to be representing you at Canterbury City Council. We will continue our work in the area, and I thank you for your support.”
- Keith Bothwell, Swalecliffe by-election CDGP Candidate
Canterbury District Green Party would like to extend its thanks to all residents in Swalecliffe who voted for us in this year's Swalecliffe by-election. While we may not have taken the seat from the Conservative Party, we are pleased to announce that the Green Party have made significant gains in our vote share and we are confident that, with continued support, we are well positioned to continue this trend in the next election!
As you will see from the graph below, CDGP was able to increase its vote share by 20% in Swalecliffe in the most recent election. This is in sharp contrast to both the Conservative and Labour candidates whose votes decreased substantially.
