Labour win Old Bracknell in the Town Council By-election

Guy Gillbe was elected last night as the new Old Bracknell councillor for Bracknell Town Council, filling the vacancy left by the resignation of Malcolm Tullett.

The figures are reproduced below:
LAB: 525, 63.18% (+25.23)
CON: 306, 36.82% (-8.72)
No LD (-16.51) as prev.
Swing: 16.98% CON to LAB
Turnout: 20% (-9)
Labour GAIN from Conservative. Changes w/ 2019
If such a swing were repeated at the local elections in May 2023, Labour would sweep every ward in Bracknell.
Says Guy:
“I’m blown away by the support offered by my community of Easthampstead.  To be elected is the highest honour, and I realise the real hard work only starts now.  I promised to be an active and visible councillor and I will make good on that, vindicating the trust my constituents have put in Labour.
I offer my thanks to Dee Hamilton, my Conservative opponent, who between us ensured a clean and positive campaign was fought.”
Says Mary Temperton, Labour councillor for Great Hollands North on Bracknell Town Council:
“It was a hard-fought campaign where we had a chance to knock on every door in Old Bracknell.  I know Guy will hit the ground running and serve as a champion for the interests of Easthampstead.
The swing of 16.98% from Conservative to Labour shows people are putting their faith in Bracknell Labour’s vision for the town.”
