Thanks for the votes

May I through the medium of the Spenborough Guardian, thank all those who trusted me with their vote at the recent local election.

Equally, my apologies to those who, because of time constraints, I was not able speak to personally. Local democracy is important for many reasons but not least because the decisions taken at Kirklees-level often affect people more in their every day lives than those taken in London and Brussels.
