Stuart Gemmill holds Stradbroke and Laxfield

My congratulations to my "rival" Stuart Gemmill who retained Stradbroke and Laxfield yesterday in what was by any account a disastrous day for the Liberal Democrats!

I would have been surprised but of course delighted to win but was pleased to pick up a respectable number of votes.

Stuart has served as a councillor for a number of years and I know he will continue to put Stradbroke, Laxfield and Wilby's interests on the agenda at Mid Suffolk.

We had a civilised campaign. I have a great deal of respect for Stuart and we agree on many things perhaps taking a slightly different approach to a few issues.

In any case it was good we had a contest as it looked at one stage like there would be an uncontested election which I don't think is good for democracy.

In good news I am now on the Parish Council and I will be working with Stuart there and on a number of other projects such as the helping to save the library. So congratulations Stuart and you can count on my help and support - well until the next elections anyway!
