I wanted to express my thanks to everyone who voted for me in this years General Election.

Although we were not successful on this occasion the warmth and support I received from the public has been overwhelming.
I want to also take this opportunity to thank all those who helped over the last 2 1/2 years, especially those people who have never had faith in politics before.
I hope that together we can continue to put faith and trust back into our political system.
My heartfelt congratulations to all of my Labour colleagues who were elected on to the council, I feel proud to have worked alongside such a dedicated and hardworking group of people who care so passionately about our town.
Finally I want to welcome all of the new members that have joined us over the last few weeks.
I look forward to working alongside you in the fight for a greater Yarmouth for all of us.
