I spent this morning canvassing for Gary Swan, the Conservative candidate for the by-election for St Mary's Ward on 25th October. I was with a team that included Stephen Barclay MP as well as party members from Peterborough, March, Wisbech and, of course, Whittlesey. It says a great deal about Gary that he has managed to bring in support from such a wide area.
It was also reassuring to know that people largely understand that both Gary and the majority of Whittlesey Conservatives are fighting the Whittlesey corner on the supermarket debate.
What I also hadn't realised until today was that Gary has cancelled a holiday to focus on this election campaign, that says a great deal about his commitment as well as the support he has from his wife. Of course, the Independent candidate has been away for two weeks on holiday!!
