May I please use your letter column to thank everyone who voted for me in the local election on May 5th?
May I also publicly thank everyone who worked, knocked on doors, outran the dogs, had their fingers nipped by letterboxes, tramped the streets, talked to the unconvinced, delivered leaflets, manned the phones, attended the meetings, those who gave encouragement, put up posters and wished me well and smiled when they could have cried.
I am humbled by your efforts.
All to no avail this time.
Here’s to May 2012
Labour Candidate for Liversedge and Gomersal.
