Lord Smith says Wigan Council will defend local services
9:20am Monday 26th May 2014 in News
LABOUR Group Leader of Wigan Council, Clr Peter Smith, who comfortably defended his Leigh West seat was delighted with the local election results.
The Leigh man said: “Despite a national media frenzy, the results demonstrate Labour’s continuing appeal to people right across the Borough. UKIP have failed to win a seat, the Lib Dems are no longer part of the political landscape and the WIN failed to win a single seat.”
“Voters responded positively to our key campaign messages around the Wigan Deal and our pledge to freeze council tax.
“We now go back to the Town Hall with a fresh mandate and will continue to defend the services that local people value.”
