Thank you!

Thank you to the 34,334 people across Greater Manchester who put their faith in me and gave me their first preference to be your city region Mayor. Thank you also to all who gave me their second preference. I am very grateful to everyone who gave me their support and voted.

I am very proud that I have now been selected to be your Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate in Altrincham and Sale West for the general election on 8th June, 2017.

Decisions are made by those who show up! Thank you all for your continued support and for stepping forward with me.
