Its Our County

Leominster South and Ross-On-Wye Bi-Elections

Leominster South and Ross-On-Wye Bi-Elections

Disappointed but chuffed at the same time; two good results for IOC last night in a County Council ward (Leominster South) we have never stood in and a Town Council we have never put any candidate up for (Ross on Wye West).

Jon Stannard came second to the Greens in Leominster South, beating the Conservatives into 3rd and the Independents (who held the ward for years) into 4th. Lib Dems last.

Jordan Creed came third in Ross on Wye West but in a close result took just under a third of the vote (28.86%).

Exceptionally proud of our candidates and extremely grateful to those of you who decided it was time for local elections to be fought by a local party. We cannot thank you enough for your faith. We hope we can continue to count on your support on the way to full County Council elections in 2019.

Well done Julian Utting of the Lib Dems in Ross and Trish Marsh in Leominster South. Looking forward to working with Trish and her two colleagues on the opposition benches to continue to fight to keep the Conservatives in check until we get adminstration change. 11 It’s Our County (IOC) Cllrs, 3 Greens and some sensible Independents all considered; time is running out for the Tories.

Ross-on-Wye West Election 23rd March

 

IOC Flyer Jordan Creed (Draft)

24 year old Jordan Creed, a bus campaigner from Ross-on-Wye, is our candidate for the Ross West Town Council by election. Ross is a town everyone assumes is Conservative, hence Jesse Norman MP will turn up for the opening of a packet of crisps here (quicker than a seagull) but Jordan is hopefully going to prove there is more to the town than meets the eye and it’s not all painted blue and faded yellow; and we are proud to try our best to represent those crying out for choice and change in this great little town on the hill. Ross is notable for a few things and the most notable of those (apart from Jacqueline’s Nite Spot, now sadly closed) is John Kyrle, the famous philanthropist who did so much for the town and townspeople. “He was generous to the poor and spent all he had in good works”. Not unlike our Conservative Cllrs then…urmm, mnnnn.

Jordan is keen to listen and to learn, please give him  chance to prove he can a difference.

IOC Flyer Jon Stannard (draft 1)

Our superb candidate for the vacant ward of Leominster South, following the sad death of Cllr Peter McCaull, is Jon Stannard, a self employed heating engineer and former IOC Executive member. It’s new ground for IOC, we have never stood in Leominster but it’s time to spread our wings and give the people of our largest town more choice. Interesting times ahead, help us to make the changes our county so desperately needs.
