Congratulations on Rosanna Taylor-Smith winning another term

Congratulations to Rosanna for winning a second term on Shropshire Council. As I knocked on the doors of Ludlow and Bromfield, I met many people who praised her work helping them. She will now be able to continue that good work.

Of course I am very disappointed not to have won. Winning was within reach, but we just didn’t turn out enough voters on the day.

I have learnt so much. I have met so many great people across Ludlow and Bromfield. I have made so many friends among our campaign team.

I would not have missed the experience for all the world (okay, I could have done without the blisters!). I stood not to gain political power but to get into the best position to help the people of Ludlow. I still intend to help people as best I can.

Meanwhile, let’s celebrate Viv Parry dismissing Martin Taylor-Smith by an astounding 224 votes in Ludlow South. It was great victory in the face of a nasty personal campaign by Taylor-Smith – a campaign that clearly backfired against him.

Tracey Huffer also got re-elected with ease in Ludlow East and Richard Huffer was returned for Clee.

There is a great Lib Dem team here in place in Ludlow. A team that cares about people first and politics second.

Thank you everyone for your support and I will be back next time there is an election.
