Celebrating Success in County 2021 Elections

May 10, 2021 9:48 PM

The Mid Sussex team has been celebrating their success in the latest round of council elections, this time electing councillors for West Sussex District Council.

In total, the party was successful in three seats, Hassocks & Burgess Hill South, a defense taking our majority from just 20 to over 1600 votes, Burgess Hill East and Burgess Hill North

Ms Lord said: "It's such an honour to be the county councillor for Hassocks and Burgess Hill South. After the narrowest of wins in 2017, I don't take residents' votes for granted and, while I'm overwhelmed by the faith they've shown in me, I plan to carry on listening to them, communicating with them and achieving improvements for our area on their behalf."

Mr Cherry added: "I feel overwhelmed that so many people in my Burgess Hill neighbourhood have given me their vote. I am both honoured and humbled by the trust they have put in me to be their new County Councillor.

"Whether residents voted for me or not, however, my duty is clear; to serve them to the very best of my ability and make Burgess Hill a better place in which to live. My strategy for this is simple and clear: to listen to what residents have to say and fight for the best outcomes for them, our community and our town."

Mr Condie added: "It will be a privilege to represent the people of Burgess Hill North at West Sussex County Council for the next four years. As the Northern Arc is built, I promise to listen to my fellow residents and act promptly and efficiently in their best interests."

In other parts of Mid Sussex, we significantly increased our majority, running the Tories close, for example in Haywards Heath Town which was within 100 votes, and Hurst & Bolney which was within 300. Thanks to all our candidates for their hard work over many months to make the campaign happen!
