Congratulations to our three Telford & Wrekin candidates for yesterday’s Shropshire Council elections for a great campaign that was sadly not reflected in the result.

Andy Mitchell came second in Shifnal South & Cosford with 40.24% of the vote, Richard Choudhary came third in Shifnal North with 17.92% of the vote and John Smith came second in Albrighton with 21.75% of the vote.

Of course we are disappointed at not winning any of the seats but this is the first time we’ve had a full throttle UKIP election campaign in any of these divisions and next time we’ll win them.

We’ve already got a number of candidates in place for the 2015 local elections and will be filling in the gaps in the coming months.  If you want to play a part in the purple revolution, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do for each other.  First year’s membership is discounted if you join through the UKIP Telford & Wrekin website.
