In the 2021 local elections, the Green Party had the most votes in the ward. There were one Green and two Labour council members representing the area before the 2022 election period began.
Your #walkley Green Team were out speaking to voters across Upperthorpe, Blake Street, Daniel Hill and the surrounding areas today. Our candidate Logan Robin could help bring vital change to our area if elected on the 5th of May. pic.twitter.com/DIcyWj0m6S
