I found out yesterday that I am one of only two seats in Fenland that is unopposed for the District Campaign and that Rita Jolley and I are also unopposed for the elections for Whittlesey Town Council.
It is a very strange feeling, I enjoy the challenge of elections; they are what politics is about, so part of me is disappointed. But there is another part of me that is obviously delighted that I can continue to serve the residents of Kingsmoor Ward.
Of course, that does not mean the election campaign is over. I am passionate about the need to reject the proposals for AV and will be putting out literature to Kingsmoor Ward about that, and I will be supporting colleagues who are facing contested elections.
