I am now out campaigning in the local elections for the rest of the week so today was my last day in the office until next Tuesday. So whilst I frantically cleared my in-tray, with the assistance of my wonderful team, candidates throughout Chatham & Aylesford were out delivering final leaflets and doing some last minute canvassing gathering support in advance of Polling Day.
If votes simply reflected the candidates' hard work, then every ward in the constituency would have a Conservative councillor with huge majorities. The enthusiasm and energy that all candidates have demonstrated over the past few months has been incredibly impressive. They are all really dedicated and deserve to be elected to Council. I wish them all the very best of luck for Thursday.
