I was honoured and delighted to have been elected Chairman of the Hammersmith Conservatives on Tuesday night.
Our community in Hammersmith is wonderfully diverse, rich in different cultures and a vital and vibrant part of our capital city. I am proud to call Hammersmith my home.
I have lived in this area for nearly thirty years, my children go to school here, I have very deep roots in Hammersmith. What happens here is very important to me.
We have a lot of work ahead of us in the coming year including the forthcoming Council election where I hope that with renewed impetus we will retake control of the Council and repair the fractured relations with our neighbouring boroughs.
I look forward to working with our party members, activists and residents in general to spread our message of constructive, compassionate conservatism ensuring it is heard, discussed and understood.
I want to make sure the voice of ordinary people, especially hard working and hard pressed families are heard. I will make sure we include them in our thinking and address their needs in our plans.
I also want to make sure we reinforce our commitment to the care and service of our most vulnerable residents, to our veterans and indeed to all residents.
I want to record my thanks to our many volunteers and activists who have already spent a lot of time out canvassing and delivering. I look forward to seeing many them all out on the campaign trail in the coming months.
As an Association we will have an exciting series of events in the lead up to the election – details of which will follow soon. I want us to be welcoming to all and a fun place to be. To win we need to work together, sharing a common purpose, a Conservative victory next year.
I would like to congratulate the new officer team elected to serve with me and I look forward to working with them. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the retiring team I wish them all well.
If you would like to get involved with us in the Hammersmith Conservatives and share in the exciting plans we have please feel free to get in touch via our website https://www.hammersmithconservatives.com/
I want to express my gratitude again for the vote of confidence in me and in my leadership. I wish everyone in Hammersmith a restful, healthy and happy Easter break.
