In May 2017 we stood a candidate for every seat in the county council elections. We repeated this in May 2018, standing a full slate of candidates in the district elections. In 2018's elections we become the official opposition in Kendal North, coming second in the vote for District Councillors and winning more than five times as many votes as we did in the previous, 2014, elections. We came significantly ahead of both Labour and the Conservatives.
We were also successful with Chris Rowley's election to represent the Kendal North ward on Kendal Town Council. Before this, all Kendal Town Councillors had been Liberal Democrats. Chris is the first Green Party councillor to be elected in Westmorland and Lonsdale: if you want to help us in getting more Green councillors elected, please get in touch.
