Sweyne Park & Grange Has Fallen

Yesterdays election saw me lose my seat on the district council for Sweyne Park & Grange. A disappointing result for me, after 2 years of a ‘full on’ approach to my role and a huge amount of passion and dedication to the role. However, this is politics and National issues can have an effect on local elections, maybe I am just a ‘victim’ of Brexit? Who knows what happened?

There are lessons to be learned from these elections and once I have taken stock of the situation, will decide on how best to continue to represent residents. I am after all, only 42 years old and have time on my side (by the grace of god) to work my way through this and on to my next challenge.

I have been lucky to have support from my wife, my family, friends & residents who all put their faith in me. I am very grateful to all who helped me get this far, for me the journey has only just begun.

To be continued………

    Devastating result of course, but let’s acknowledge the fantastic work of the last 2 years, residents problems solved, major issues tackled, genuine progress made. No ordinary term by any means. The result remains a mystery….
