A Lichfield councillor says he is “humbled and privileged” after winning a seat on Staffordshire County Council.

Cllr Richard Cox

Cllr Richard Cox secured the Lichfield Rural West division with a margin of more than 2,000 votes.

He said:

“I would like to say, how honoured, humbled and privileged to be elected to Staffordshire County Council representing all the parishes in Lichfield Rural West Division.

“I’m looking forward to working with all the parish councils within my the division and represent all residents to my best ability, assuring them I will listen to their concerns with empathy. 

“I would like thank all those residents who voted for me and the excellent team of volunteers who helped with my campaign.”

Cllr Cox’s victory was one of a number for the Conservatives as they increased their majority at Staffordshire County Council – including a clean sweep of seats across Lichfield and Burntwood.

  1. And another £9k of taxpayers’ money to go with the £11k he already pockets from LDC. Privileged indeed.

  2. Now just waiting to see if Cllr Rudd trots out the same banal party line after he defeated Sue Woodward. Do not know anything about him at all and I’m guessing the bland statement we’ll get will tell us absolutely nothing about him either.
