Steve Mackay elected to represent St Peter's on Worcester City Council
Steve Mackay described his delight after winning the St Peter’s ward seat in Worcester City Council’s elections to return to the council after a year.
Mr Mackay lost his Battenhall seat a year ago but has been elected in St Peter’s, succeeding Roger Knight, who retired this year.
“I’m very pleased with winning,” said Mr Mackay, “Thanks to the people of St Peter’s, who gave me this opportunity of representing them.”
He added: “I understand that a lot of people do appear disillusioned with politics at the moment but this is all about making St Peter’s an even better place than it already is.
“I’m very glad to be back on the city council.
"I want to work with colleagues to bring about some good economic growth into the city and make it a place for both residents and visitors alike.”
Eleven of the city council’s 35 seats were up for election this year.
The overall results left the authority with no overall control, with the Conservatives, who had a majority of one, losing a seat to the Greens.
The city council now has 17 Conservative members, 15 Labour and three Greens.
