I wrote to the Wokingham Paper to say thank you to all the residents who voted for me. In case you didn’t get to see it here is my letter in full.
How can I help?
More than 2,800 residents of Norreys made the effort to vote on May 2nd. In light of the national uncertainty, I believe that this represents a tremendous display of civic pride from our community. To every one who made the effort to vote, regardless of how you voted, I thank you.
During the campaign I have been fortunate enough to speak with many, many residents of Norreys. I appreciate you taking the time to talk to me and your honesty with me on your doorsteps. I share your concerns over infrastructure, extensive house building, anti-social behaviour and many other issues. I want you to know that I will champion your issues on Wokingham Borough Council, that I will be your voice and that I will make sure that your concerns are heard, regardless of if, or how you voted.
Thursday’s election results show a clear desire for change across Wokingham and I am pleased that both Nick Fox and Elizabeth Bishop gained seats on the Town Council. All your Norreys Conservative councillors want to change Wokingham for the better and I know that they do too.
Congratulations to everyone who won a seat on either the Borough or Town Councils on Thursday. Now that the election is over and all the results are in it is clear that for the residents of Wokingham we need to put aside party divisions and work together for the benefit of all our communities. None of us wanted to stand for election to have arguments and too squabble, we did it because we are passionate about our community and we are eager to make the lives of our residents better. Our mandate is clear, to work together for the greater good of the community, to help people resolve the issues that impair their peaceful, law abiding lives and to improve our town for future generations to benefit from.
Your Norreys representatives can help shape the future of our town and our community, but first we need you to answer us a question, How can we help? We want to, we have been elected to, so please, get in touch and tell us how we can help make our town, our community and your lives better.
Many thanks again to everyone who took the time to vote on May 2nd, and particularly to everyone who has done me the honour of casting their vote for me. I am truly humbled by your support and I am determined to live up to the faith that you have shown in me.
Cllr Gregor Murray – Norreys.
