Congratulations to Cllr Adrian England, Hertfordshire's newest Liberal Democrat Councillor!
Adrian won his seat in Adeyfield West, Hemel Hempstead from the Conservatives in a by-election held on Thursday 29th September. The Lib Dem vote share increased by a huge 24%, with Labour slumping to a poor third.
Deputy Mayor of Watford Cllr Peter Taylor said, "This stunning victory in Hemel Hempstead shows that the Liberal Democrats are gaining momentum all over Hertfordshire. With Corbyn's Labour in disarray, voters are turning to the Liberal Democrats to provide a strong, united opposition to the Government and a positive agenda for Hertfordshire"
Across the country, the Liberal Democrats have gained twenty seats in by-elections since May and lost none.
The party has also gained 20,000 members since May.
