WELL DONE ADRAIN WALMSLEY - CHESTER'S NEWEST COUNCILLOR
If anyone needs proof that the people in Chester are saying it is time for a change, last night’s by-election result in Newton St Michael’s is it. Our candidate, Adrian Walmsley, ran a positive campaign, playing to people’s hopes and not their fears, and it paid off. The Conservatives are listening to what people want and we are delivering accordingly, which is what democratic government is meant to do. The Lib Dems put forward their highest profile person in the area, an area they have dominated for over 20 years, and then embarked on a very dirty negative campaign : Newton’s residents have clearly spoken about who, and what style of Party, they want to represent them, and that is the Conservative Party.
We gained five new Councillors in the May 2006 elections, one of which was Marigold Roy in Newton St Michael’s ward: Adrian’s success demonstrates that May was not a one–off and that Chester’s residents really are looking for Change. The Conservative Party is the only party that is offering not only change, but giving people and communities a sense of hope and optimism. Adrian and Marigold make a great team and I know they will make a real difference to Newton St Michael’s – an area that has been under-represented for too long. I will continue to work with them both to make sure that Newton’s residents also get the representation they deserve at a national level.
So to the people in Newton, I can simply say – the future’s bright, the future’s blue.
