Peter Carlil held the Calverley & Farsley Ward 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 Carlill received 3,926 votes, 1,390 ahead of Conservative candidate Jas Singh, who had 2,536 votes.
“I am really proud to have held the seat,” said Cllr Carlill. “The ward is always interesting at election time but this result is more about a local candidate who works hard rather than just following party political lines. I have always tried to do my best for every area of Calverley & Farsley and people have seen the work and responded to that.
“I’m looking forward to continuing my work and delivering positive action in our community.”
Cllr Carlill was first elected four years ago with a 27-vote majority.
The result leaves Calverley & Farsley ward as it was before, with two Conservative councillors (Andrew and Amanda Carter) and one Labour (Peter Carlill).
Here are the results:
- Peter John Carlill – Labour and Co-operative Party 3,926
- Ellen Graham – Green Party 251
- Rob Lees – Yorkshire Party 250
- Stuart McLeod – Liberal Democrats 205
- Jas Singh – Conservative Party 2,536
Turnout was 39%.
