As you may already know, the Labour candidate for Council, Sam Mongon, won by just 7 votes on Thursday with myself in second place on 1,100 and the Green Party polling 920 to take third.
1,100 votes would have won in 9 of the other 24 wards that were up for election: but Windmill Hill is not those wards and it was just shy of enough on this occasion.
I want to thank every one of those 1,100 who did vote for me: your faith and trust was much appreciated. It’s an odd feeling seeing ballot papers with your name on them mounting up: it’s both elating and humbling at the same time.
I’d also like to congratulate Sam, again, and to re-iterate my hope that he can work constructively with Councillor Mark Bailey in achieving the best for the communities of Windmill Hill.
It’s too early to say what I’ll do next – I’ll have sooo much free time! – but as a Totterdown resident, I’m going remain active in the community here: getting involved in various local Civic Groups.
Finally, I will be continuing to fight for Liberal Democracy in Bristol, and in Britain. If you want to join that fight, then contact me.
P.S. You can see the full Windmill Hill result here.2 Comments
