As a resident of SS17 myself, it has always been a privilege serving Stanford West as your councillor, back from May 2011 when I was first elected.

Never have I been more humbled than last Thursday, having been re-elected for a third term, serving the ward I love.

I have never taken SS17 for granted, and I never will.

Working with councillor Terry Piccolo has been an enormous privilege in itself, and we have made some amazing friends over the years, and we look forward to carrying on working with everyone to make SS17 a great place to live in.

Thank you for those who supported me – including the best wishes messages in the days leading up to, and on the day. They meant a great deal.

Like I always have, I am here to serve all residents of Stanford West, regardless of political persuasions. I am in the service of all of you all, always.

Again, thank you. It has been a privilege to serve, and I go into my third term as excited, animated and energised as I felt when I was first elected back in 2011.
