27 votes away from first Green Councillor

Thank you to everyone who voted for myself, Len and all the other Green candidates in Buckhurst Hill. In Buckhurst Hill East we scored our best results and I came within just 27 votes of taking a seat on Buckhurst Hill Parish Council. It is very encouraging and will strengthen our resolve to fight for the seat. The new Parish Council is entirely Tory with all 11 seats taken by that party. I wish them well but it is unhealthy for democracy when one party has unlimited power with no one to hold them to account.
