I would like to say thank you to the people of Dewsbury, Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton for the support that was given to me and the Liberal Democrats.
I would also like to congratulate Paula Sherriff on being elected as the Member of Parliament. I hope that the MP is now able to deliver on the promises made. Top of the list will be protecting services at Dewsbury Hospital and ensuring that the hospital remains in Dewsbury.
Even though I have not been successful this time, I will continue to campaign on the issues that matter to the people of the constituency. My door is open and will always remain open to the public.
The Liberal Democrats have already started to rebuild and I am pleased to confirm that over 5,000 members have joined the party since Thursday night.
Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Dewsbury
