We'd like to say thank you to everyone who voted for us in the local elections on 22 May and have supported the local “Spotlight” Liberal Democrats over so many years.Although you voted for us in large numbers, it wasn’t quite enough this time, and West Hampstead now has three Labour councillors, who we wish well in their new role and in adjusting to the demanding life of a West Hampstead councillor. The good people of West Hampstead quite rightly expect a lot of their councillors!
Thank you also to the many of you who have emailed, tweeted, written or phoned us expressing your thanks for all the work we’ve done over the years. We really appreciate you taking the time to do that.
Having chalked up a total of 36 years between us as West Hampstead councillors, it’s hard to pick out individual achievements, but some examples we’re particularly proud of are Gillian’s success in bringing the Farmers’ Market to West Hampstead, John’s scheme to give our local paths proper names, including Billy Fury Way, and Keith’s role organising and chairing our well attended West Hampstead area forums.
You can rest assured that West Hampstead Liberal Democrats will still be playing an active part in the life of the area, not least in the form of our colleague Flick Rea, who is still a councillor for Fortune Green ward. What’s more you can still expect to see the paper version of Spotlight regularly landing on your doormat in the future.
Meanwhile, we look forward to seeing you at the Jester Festival on 5th and 6th July when West Hampstead Liberal Democrats will have their usual cake stall.
With best wishes
Your Liberal Democrat Spotlight team
