The election is over and unfortunately I didn’t get elected, however I did come in second place so I think that is something to be proud of.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for their support and a big thanks to everyone who voted for me, I know its difficult to change the political landscape of an area but your support has made future change more likely.
I intend to regularly attend council meetings and to continue to work within the community supporting people who want to make a positive contribution towards our area.
North Somerset First Independents may have only had one councillor elected but we did get over 11,000 votes across the whole of North Somerset and in a number of areas we were in second place. For an organisation that only started a few months ago this is a fantastic achievement.
Going forward North Somerset First Independents will be looking to attract more members and potential candidates with a view to standing at least 30 candidates in the next elections.
If you are interested in becoming a member or would like to know more about becoming an independent candidate then please contact me for more information.
