You can see the newspaper I distributed during the campaign, The Real Midlothian News on my Campaign Materials page. I have now been elected but it still indicates what I stand for. Below are just some of the congratulations I have received since Friday May 4.
“Congratulations. Well done. We are delighted. You fought an excellent campaign, put in the footslogging and good publications – not surprising really, it does show that brains can still beat brawn.” RM
“Congratulations on being elected to the council. I think its time we had a change of council and I do hope you will support that. This year I was optimistic about change. In the past i felt my vote didn’t count because the same party always got in. I do hope our elected representatives will work in a co-operative manner for the benefit of Midlothian. “ AG
“I am so delighted for you. I gather you may have got in by 14 votes? whatever – you are in. You deserve to be there and I am so looking forward to your input into an organisation that have some serious issues to deal with.” SG
“My sincere congratulations on your election….a remarkable achievement of which you should be very proud.” AR
“Many congratulations on the amazing turn of events: it really
proved the potential of second and third transfer votes. Just think of it – you now hold the balancing power in a hung council. A whole new world lies at your feet…..” WC
