After a long campaign, I was delighted to be elected with 53% of the vote. I will work my very hardest for everybody in Penrith and the Border including, of course, those of you who supported other candidates.

I just wanted to say how incredibly grateful I am to you all for your energy, your interest and your support. I hope to be able to hear from and see many of you in the forthcoming few weeks.
