Thank-you to everyone who voted for me in yesterday's elections. It was always going to be tricky to win the seat at the first attempt, but I'm very happy with 632 votes and a comfortable second place. The Lib Dems came in third on 439 votes. It's been a while since a Conservative candidate came second in Ladywood, and it just goes to show that if you have the right policies and put in enough effort, the result starts to go your way.
Here's to next year!
