Overall Winners – Edinburgh Lib Dems [pictured]

Well done to our overall winners Edinburgh. From Alex Cole-Hamilton’s win over the SNP in 2016 to become the Member of Scottish Parliament, the team have since gone on to win more council seats and ensure a Lib Dem gain with the excellent Christine Jardine entering Parliament this June. The team in Edinburgh have doubled their council team from three to six councillors and the team at ALDC were really impressed by Kevin Lang who achieved an amazing 6,079 first preference votes – which we think is the highest in the country! Congratulations!

Congratulations to every team nominated for this year’s awards.


* ALDC is the Association of Liberal Democrat Councillors and Campaigners
