City Elections 2018 – OX3 Candidates

Here are the candidates standing in the six OX3 wards in the City elections. Polling day is Thursday 3 May. Current councillors standing for re-election are marked with an asterisk *.

We can expect few if any surprises. The main unknown is how much of a swing to the LibDems there will be as a pro-remain vote, but of the five seats held by Labour only Quarry & Risinghurst seems possibly vulnerable. Here in 2016 Chewe Munkonge’s margin over LibDem Roz Smith was only 140 votes (6.1 percentage points). City Council Leader Susan Brown’s seat for Labour in Churchill looks secure; Labour’s Mark Lygo got almost¬† 68% of the votes in 2016, and Susan Brown’s own share in 2014 was over 52%.
