Bridgwater Stays RED

Bridgwater remains LABOUR

Labour has retained control of Bridgwater Town Council and increased it’s majority to 13.3 against Tories taking back 2 seats including the seat of former Mayor turned Tory, Diogo Rodrigues who was defeated by Labour stalwart Dave Loveridge. The Town Council result saw the Tories keeping just 3 seats, 2 in Wyndham and 1 in Dunwear South against strong challenges from Labour candidates. Town Council Leader Brian Smedley said afterwards “This is a great victory for Bridgwater at exactly the right time. Now is the time to make a pitch to regain the powers we’ve lost over the years since the abolition of Bridgwater Borough. With Sedgemoor going in a years time and the Unitary Somerset seeking to devolve powers to towns and parishes we have exactly the right team in place to run with this and bring back some power and prosperity to Bridgwater. I’d like to thank all our candidates and helpers. We had brilliant support throughout and people worked tirelessly. We have 6 new councillors and the composition is 50-50 male female. Bridgwater done good.”
