“Thank you to the members who put their faith in me as a Conservative candidate for Clock House ward, now I will be focused on presenting a positive vision for the area and making the case as to why I should your new ward councillor. I really look forward to the campaign ahead and the exchange of ideas”.
“In addition to getting out and talking to local people about the issues that matter to them I will also work with both resident and community groups to support the great work they do and work to make Clock House and even better place to live. I’ve already shown what I can do as a campaigner, securing extra rush hour capacity on a busy bus route, so now I want to build on that track record so residents can know for sure if they elect me in May 2022 that I’ll be the strong voice they deserve in the Town Hall”.
