Notes

  1. ^ Moxon was previously a Weetwood ward councillor from 1990 to 1998.
  2. ^ At the next election in 2004, Taggart successfully stood to be one of the three new Labour Councillors for the new Bramley and Stanningley ward. Jane Dowson replaced Taggart whilst his two fellow ward councillors did not stand for re-election and retired.
  3. ^ For the next election in 2008, Hamilton did not seek re-selection as the Labour candidate for the ward, standing unsuccessfully as their candidate for Roundhay ward. She would later be elected in 2010 as a councillor for Moortown ward.[9]
