After speaking with over 1000 residents in just under a month, Lib Dem canvassing data suggests a tight election result between the Lib Dems and the Conservatives in the Clay Hill by-election, with Labour and Greens trailing behind.
Figures have shown a two-way race between the Lib Dems and the Conservatives, and with just under a month to go before polling day it's clear that every vote will make a difference in determining the end result.
A campaign insider recently revealed: “Residents are shocked at the reasoning behind the current Tory councillor standing down and this by-election being called. With the pandemic highlighting the importance of community and compassion, Stuart’s proven dedication to helping others is like a breath of fresh air. Residents have been delighted to speak to someone that clearly cares about the local area and put residents' concerns first.”
Clay Hill has felt the brunt of Tory mismanagement over the last few years, with our insider adding: “Local residents have felt cast aside from many Conservative considerations for the area – cuts imposed by the Conservatives in Westminster to council budgets have meant that waste bins aren't being emptied as much as they could be, leading to a build up in litter, and the loss of the Faraday Road football ground has been sorely felt by the community. Stuart’s experience as a parish councillor and in project management leaves residents hopeful that more thoughtful leadership is to come. Would-be Labour and Green voters should now throw their support behind Stuart to ensure another competent, compassionate and community-focused voice on Newbury Town Council”.
