I've just done my thank you letters to all the people that helped me, the Shepton Mallet Labour Party candidate, win the Shepton west District Council by-election and a very good showing in the county council elections.
Through my blog, I would like to thank all those people who voted for me, it is the first time in 10 years Labour will be represented at Mendip, this the first step in Labour's long haul back after the 2003 defeat.
Like I said in my campaign, my first duty will be to work hard and do my very best for this great town.
The campaign was extremely hard work, at the count most candidates looked very tired and physically lame.
It will take a couple of days to review the elections, so I do not intend to do more today then to say Thank You.
