We’re delighted to say that Labour have won the local election in St Helens Borough!
We have a strong, clear majority and a mandate to deliver our plans for the borough in the next four years.
Thank you to everyone for your support!
Council Leader David Baines says: “We now hold 29 out of 48 seats after receiving over 50,000 votes – that’s 52.5% of the vote, and an increase of 10.7% on our vote share last year.
I’m also pleased to say I have been re-elected as Leader and I’m looking forward to getting straight back to work.
Many new councillors were elected for all parties. They will be offered all the support they need from council officers, and regardless of politics my door is always open to them.
Our Labour council will work hard for you in the next four years to deliver our manifesto commitments: www.sthelenslabour.org/vote2022.
I want to thank all those residents who voted Labour last week, and all my excellent Labour colleagues, members and supporters for their hard work in the campaign and all year round. I would also like to thank all our amazing council staff who administered the elections professionally and impartially. It literally couldn’t happen without them.
A lot done, more to do. Back to work!”
