Bob Price: Labour
I think the work we did on the doorstep indicated strong support for Labour, but clearly with the EU elections on the same day that might have been an issue.
In a number of marginal wards we came out on the right side.
I think the reason people are voting for us is effective administration, good delivery of services and an awareness of the things that are important in individual wards and paying attention to the details people are concerned about.
Housing was one of the issues mentioned on almost every doorstep and I think people feel we have got the measure of what needs to be done on that.
We have to build a large number of houses in and around the city in a short amount of time and our HMO licensing scheme is working.
The number of complaints about HMOs has gone down dramatically.
Jean Fooks: Lib Dems
Clearly the students didn’t vote for us and that’s a relic from the tuition fees promise, which was made before the last General Election.
The pledge which was made was very unwise and has been apologised for quite rightly.
I think the residents on the whole were supportive, but the majority of students obviously went for the Green Party.
We have done very well in Wolvercote and we have increased our majority on the last time. We have won in St Margaret’s with a respectable majority and Headington was a brilliant result.
I think residents know we work hard for them and the majority think we are worth voting for. I am very pleased with those results and I am delighted for my colleagues.
I don’t think it will be a struggle to hold the administration to account.
We will continue to focus on those areas where the Labour administration doesn’t listen to people and do as well as it should.
Dick Wolff: Green Party
When I was elected four years ago it was a national election and there was a high student turn-out.
We didn’t think there would be that same turn-out again this time but I have got a feeling they did and probably voted Green.
The Greens are the second biggest party in Oxford, based on our share of the vote across the city, and we have polled more strongly in just about every seat.
We have got a very good team. Craig Simmons is very well known and thoroughly experienced, and that helps.
What is important is for the Green Party to build on its successes and we can take votes everywhere.
The Greens have got a sizeable core vote in many of the wards in the city but because we have got a first past the post system that isn’t enough to give us seats.
