Knowle Lib Dems


August 31, 2017
Bristol adopted the 4 year election system so both Gary and Chris had to re-stand for their seats. Once again they beat the national trend due to the Brexit issue which put the Conservatives back in, but with a smaller majority.  Between them Gary and Chris polled 53% of the vote in Knowle Ward. Next local elections will now be in 2020. They would like to thank all the residents in Knowle that voted for them to continue as their councillors.

May 2011 Local Elections

February 20, 2011
Chris is standing for re-election in May this year having been chosen by Knowle Lib Dems as their candidate.  We need lots of help with campaigning to ensure we keep both of our hard working and dedicated councillors.  The election reform referendum will take place on the same day and we must work hard to publicise this and gain a 'Yes' vote so that Lib Dems can at last be fairly represented in Parliament with their full share of the seats.

Despite the difficult national picture Chris held all his personal vote, polling more than in 2007.  The national swing and the AV vote reduced his majority but the result shows Knowle residents have confidence in Chris and Gary and appreciate all they are doing.
