The last seventeen months have been fantastic.
It has been a privilege to serve as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Halton and to work with the members and supporters of Halton Conservatives. I am extremely grateful for all their support for my campaign, especially during the last four gruelling weeks.
Most importantly, I am grateful for all the support I received from the people of Halton on Thursday, who gave me their vote and helped us achieve a 3% swing from Labour to the Conservatives. I am humbled by the trust they placed in me.
