Tom Hinchliffe comfortably held the Bramley & Stanningley Ward seat for Labour at this year’s Leeds City Council elections.
The count was held this morning in the First Direct Arena in Leeds following voting on Thursday.
Cllr Hinchcliffe received 2,662 votes, 1,966 ahead of Conservative candidate Adam Cook’s 696.
At the count Cllr Hinchcliffe thanked Bramley & Stanningley residents for their support.
He said: “Voters have sent a message to the Conservatives and have kept them out of our community. Councillors Kevin Ritchie and Caroline Gruen do a fantastic job in the ward and I’m delighted to be working alongside them.
“People across the country have voted for change today.”
Cllr Hinchcliffe takes over from Jools Heselwood, who stood for election in Weetwood Ward. Labour have dominated the ward since 2003.
