The campaigns are over, the polls are closed and the counting has been done.
I am so delighted and privileged that the people of Whitwick and Thringstone have elected me to be your County Councillor.
For so many of you to trust me with your votes is a great honour, one that I can only try to repay by working hard for you every day.
Whether you voted for me or not my job is to work on your behalf.
If there is any problem that you need help with please do not hesitate to contact me, I am there for you.
The Labour Party has been through difficult times in recent years but I hope that by seeing how hard we work for you locally, how we are on your side, that we are rebuilding your trust.
Once again, thank you for your trust.
