Welcoming the Result Dr Charles West said:
“Andrew Bannerman has lived and worked in Shrewsbury and for Shrewsbury for many years. He cares passionately for the town and has campaigned on traffic issues, tourism and for better facilities for young people. He is just the sort of councillor we need to see working for the local community and we are delighted to see that his contribution has been recognised.”
Heather Kidd added:
“This election was hard fought but most importantly we had a great candidate. Andrew Bannerman will make an excellent councillor for this town centre Division. The people have chosen the best man for the job. I am delighted that they recognised that fact above the party politics which began to raise its head in the last few days.”Best of all, the ALDC site tells us that Andrew is a relation of the Liberal prime minister Henry Campbell-Bannerman.
