2015 Election Results - the Green Surge!
On Thursday May 7th 2015 elections took place in York for the two parliamentary constituencies of York Central and York Outer, as well as for the City Council. Greens did extremely well in both sets of elections, doubling our seats on the City Council with wins for Denise Craghill in Guildhall and Lars Kramm in Micklegate.
Incumbent Councillors Dave Taylor and Andy D'Agorne were re-elected in Fishergate with increased majorities. The total number of Green votes cast in the local election was double the number in the 2011 elections.
You can read the full election results on the Local Election results page of the City of York Council website.
