Election result: David re-elected

David Meikle has been re-elected for a third term as the Conservative Councillor for the Pollokshields Ward on Glasgow City Council. Pollokshields ward covers Pollokshields, Shawlands, Strathbungo, Waverley Park, Crossmyloof, Port Eglinton, Craigton and Dumbreck.

David received 2,370 first preference votes and was re-elected at stage 1. His vote increased by 696 first preference votes compared to the result in 2012 when David got 1,674. The turnout in Pollokshields Ward was 49%.

The overall Glasgow result was SNP 39 seats, Labour 31, Conservatives 8 and Green 7. This means no party has overall control. The SNP as the largest party will form an administration.

David says: "I am delighted to have been re-elected for a third term as a councillor for Pollokshields Ward. I ran a positive campaign based on my achievements and record of action - this was reflected in my vote increasing by such a significant amount.

"I therefore want to say 'Thank You' to every one who voted for me. It is a real honour that people have placed their trust in me again and I look forward to representing my constituents and the communities that make up the Pollokshields Ward.

"I will continue to hold advice surgeries, regularly communicate and always put local people's interests first. I also have a plan to improve the area and I aim to deliver on the pledges I made. Thanks again for your support: it's great to be re-elected so I can get back to working hard all year round for you."

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please get in touch with David direct. Home visits are available for constituents and advice surgeries will start back up as soon as possible. You can also call his office 0141 287 7013 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm) or write to him at Glasgow City Council, City Chambers, Glasgow G2 1DU.
