Following Cllr Martin Smith's stunning win in the Aldwick West by-election in November, Arun Lib Dems gained another Arun District Council seat from the Conservatives.
Liberal Democrat candidate, Matt Stanley gained the Bognor Regis (Marine) seat in a by-election in February, a seat the Conservatives have held for many years. This time the Conservatives were pushed into third-place in the District contest. Matt Stanley was also elected to represent residents on Bognor Regis Town Council on the same day.
Housing developments and Conservative neglect of the views of the town's residents proved to be the main issues for the local residents.
The Conservatives at Arun must start listening to what local people are saying, and voting for.
