Stockport election results 2003

by Iain Roberts on 24 October, 2010

A shout out to Lib Dem blogger John Abrams who was elected in Cale Green this year. You’ll see below that I’ve also got the results for Tameside borough for this year.  Not sure why – they just turned up in the file the Council sent me, so they get published.  Enjoy. 01/05/03 2003 Stockport […]

Stockport election results 2002

by Iain Roberts on 17 October, 2010

The Lib Dems took control of Stockport Council again in 2002, and have held it since. Pam King won in Cheadle, defeating Ian Roberts (not me, but my Conservative namesake who’s currently the chair of governors at Kingsway school).  Patsy Calton, by now MP for Cheadle, stood in her Bramhall council seat but came second.

Stockport election results 1999

by Iain Roberts on 3 October, 2010

Well into the Blair era and the results in Stockport are taking on a feel that won’t change a great deal in the following decade. 1999 was the year the Lib Dems first gained overall control of Stockport Council. It was under no overall control to 1975, then Conservative run to 1983, then no overall […]

Stockport election results 1998

by Iain Roberts on 26 September, 2010

We’ve reached 1998 in my review of Stockport’s local election results from 1974 onwards. The Lib Dems took a second seat in Cheadle ward and the Conservatives won back Bramhall East, beating Brian Millard.  Current councillors Shan Alexander and Margaret McLay won in 1998.  Sue Derbyshire, who currently holds the finance portfolio on Stockport’s Executive, […]

Stockport election results 1996

by Iain Roberts on 19 September, 2010

Up to 1996 in my review of Stockport’s local election results from 1974 onwards, and a fourth future MP arrives on the scene as Mark Hunter is elected in North Marple. Andrew Stunell, Anne Coffey and Patsy Calton all spent time as Stockport councillors before taking their places in Westminster too. Another good year for […]

by Iain Roberts on 12 September, 2010

And so we reach 1995 in my tour of Stockport’s local election results from 1974 onwards. Colin Macalister won over 87% of the vote standing for Labour in Brinnington, my namesake Ian Roberts held his seat for the Conservatives in Cheadle (the Lib Dems had snatched one seat in 1994). The East Bramhall election was […]

Stockport election results 1994

by Iain Roberts on 5 September, 2010

The latest in my reports of Stockport’s elections from 1974 onwards, 1994 was an important year for the Lib Dems and (although I wasn’t on the scene) for me too, with hindsight. The Lib Dems won Cheadle ward for the first time, as well as taking Bramhall East and West. In the process, Patsy Calton […]

Stockport election results 1991

by Iain Roberts on 22 August, 2010

The latest in my reports of Stockport’s local elections from 1974 onwards.  1991 looks like the year nothing much changed.  The only exception I’ve spotted is John Ashworth regaining his council seat in Edgeley, having been edged out in 1990. My namesake Ian Roberts was re-elected for Cheadle, John Pantall was safely returned in Cheadle […]
