Serving you as your Member of Parliament has been the greatest honour of my lifetime.
My focus as your MP has been simple: to work for our community to the very best of my ability. Five years ago when I asked for your support to be your MP I wrote, "I want to be a dedicated local MP who is a strong voice for local people in Westminster." That is what I have tried to do .
Every year, as I promised, I have produced an Annual Report to let you know what I have done. I have also sent out a survey to local people. Every reply was read by me and I answered everyone personally.
It is right that as the General Election approaches I report back to you again. I hope you will get a flavour of the things I have been able to do for our area as your MP.
As long as you continue to put your trust in me to serve you I will always do everything I can to prove myself worthy of your support.
