The run up to the May elections was a very busy time for myself and the English Democrats, as the North West Chairman I was also involved with the Mayoral campaigns in Salford and Liverpool as well as giving guidance to candidates in other areas, however the area I live was still my priorty and I still managed to put out 4,500 national leaflets, 4,500 local A5 leaflets, 4,000 A4 local leaflets and 1,000 last minute A5 leaflets. This helped to put not just me but also those who voted for me (as we are all a team) in to 2nd place pushing the Tory’s into 3rd and Lib Dems into 4th.
Both myself and Val would like to thank everyone who voted for us, our campaigns do not stop at elections and we will continue the fight to bring Democracy to England and make sure our taxes are used to benefit our areas.
