City Elections 2017 – re-elected in City wide elections

On 23rd March 2017 City-wide elections were held for the 100 elected Members that form City Corporation’s main Court of Common Council.


I stood for re-election as Common Councilman for the Ward of Walbrook, together with Peter Bennett and we were both successfully re-elected in a contested election:

  • James Thomson – 113 votes
  • Peter Bennett – 123 votes
  • Lady Xuelin Bates – 81 votes

City Matters published an article on the City Elections that describes a little bit more about the elections and democracy in the City.  It can be found by following this link to the article.
