It is an honour and a privilege to be your representative once again and I will do my best to repay your trust by listening and standing up for you. I would also like to thank the wonderful team who supported me in the campaign and congratulate Adam Ogilvie, Asghar Khan, Patrick Davey, Gerry Harper and Judith Blake on their re-election as councillors.

I am sorry that we now have a Conservative Government but I will do my best to hold that Government to account and speak up for our city.
