A recent survey across West Berkshire has revealed that over 75% want a Liberal Democrat-run council rather than a Conservative one.
The Liberal Democrats are preparing to take back control of West Berkshire Council after a recent survey showed 75% of people asked want them to take control in 2019.
Since 2015, the Liberal Democrats have won the majority of elections in West Berkshire, proving the Liberal Democrats are back in business and in 2018 they outperformed both Labour and the Conservatives in the local elections – gaining four councils and the most councillors of any party.
Lib Dem Councillor Jeff Brooks commented on the upcoming election saying, “Over the last four years, the Liberal Democrats have enjoyed gains across West Berkshire. We have shown we can win everywhere. These results have shown a rejection of the way the Conservatives have been running things and a clear boost for the Liberal Democrat approach.”
Commentators are already speculating that the Liberal Democrats will make a strong challenge in the upcoming elections.
Residents will have the chance to elect new councils for West Berkshire District Council, Newbury and Thatcham Town Councils and Greenham and Theale Parish Councils on May 2nd.
