Exeter’s first ever elected Green Councillor

We had a historic win in the May Exeter City Council elections. Diana Moore became the city’s first elected Green councillor, in St Davids ward, after a landslide victory. She won the seat from Labour with a staggering 1455 votes (55%) compared to Labour’s 796 (30%). She secured the highest personal vote of any candidate standing across the city.

Results across the UK suggest that once a first Green seat is won, others follow more easily, so fingers crossed, this is the beginning of a real Green Wave for Exeter.

Diana says : I want to specially thank the many volunteers who helped achieve this result, whether pounding the streets delivering leaflets, entering data, writing election materials, donating funds or providing babysitting! We only won because of this hard work by so many people.

 And goodbye from ex-Councillor Chris Musgrave

I stood down from my Alphington seat in May for personal reasons.
It has been a privilege to sit on Exeter City Council and
I am immensely proud of my achievements including leading the council to phase out single-use plastics, highlighting the city’s lack of action on Exeter’s illegal air pollution and supporting residents in their efforts to save leisure facilities and green spaces and input into planning decisions.

And Exeter Green Party says thank you to Chris for his brave stance in joining us and his hard work. We are delighted that he is continuing ‘behind the scenes’ work with Exeter Green Party.
