Nicola re-elected as your local Member of Parliament, storming to victory with a majority of 9,582! Nicola gained 26, 153 votes (46%), the Liberal Democrats 16, 571 votes (29%), the Labour Party 7,274 votes (13%), and UKIP 3, 963 votes (7%). This means Nicola’s majority is now 9,582, up from a majority of 176 in 2010. Turnout was higher than in 2010, at an impressive 75%.
She is absolutely delighted to have been re-elected with such a huge increase in her majority, and when the outcome was declared in the early hours of 8th May she delivered a speech to set out how she will continue to represent all voters in Oxford West & Abingdon, regardless of who they voted for, and fight on for the vital infrastructure needed locally, including transport improvements and flood defences, as well as skills and education investment so that local people benefit from our economic success.
Nicola ran an entirely positive campaign, pointing to her strong record over the past five years, and has been supported by hundreds of volunteers and activists from the local area and across the county.
Nicola says I am honoured to have been re-elected to serve Oxford West and Abingdon for the next five years. The public have put their trust in the Conservatives nationally, and I have stood on my record as Member of Parliament for the past five years as a constituency champion.
I am so proud to represent my home constituency, and I will continue with my plan to secure a better future for our local area. This would not have been possible without the huge number of volunteers and activists who have been out to support me over recent months and weeks, I am proud of the positive campaign we have run and would like to thank all those who have helped in any way.
