I wanted to say thank you for all of your hard work over the course of the election. Having you out alongside me every day, not only kept me going and inspired us to work harder but it directly contributed towards the great results we saw across Southampton.
We had an excellent manifesto with very popular policies and a leader in Jeremy Corbyn who inspired new voters however it was you who took our messages out to the voters.
My increased majority is a testament to every one of you who knocked on a door, ran a street stall or picked up the phone for the Labour Party. In Itchen you helped Simon run Royston very close and there is no doubt if we keep up the good work we will beat him at the next General Election, whenever that may be!
All in all the last 8 weeks have been a great example of what we can achieve together and we look forward to working with you in the coming months and years to build upon our successes nationally and locally.
