Good effort Avenues voters! Ours was the city’s second best turnout at 34%. (Beverley ward was 41%. The turnout of 7 wards was under 20%!).
The Green Party Avenues vote was 513, or 16% equalling our previous best. We came third after the Lab-LibDem derby. We beat UKIP and Tory.
That single vote came 34th out of 76, beating 42 other votes across the city: 19 Conservatives, all 8 UKIPs, 10 Lib Dems, 1 Lab, and all 4 NFs! (One Tory received 19 votes!)
Congratulations also to the two areas which weren't targets: to James Russell (8%), third in Newland, beating the Tories, and to Mike Lammiman (5%) who beat the Lib Dem candidate and came fourth in Bricknell.
