Aberconwy Election Result

My Congratulations go to Janet Finch Saunders AM for winning this seat, she worked hard and fought a clean fight.

Janet Finch Saunders Conservatives 6,888

Iwan Huws Plaid Cymru 5,321

Eifion Wyn Williams Labour 5,206

Mike Priestley Lib Dems 2,873

I raised the vote in Aberconwy for the Libdems by 5% and contributed to assist Aled Roberts in his election for one of the four Regional seats. I supported Aled to become our number one for the list and feel that he will make an excellent AM, Congratulations also go to him.

In the current circumstances with the national picture, I am happy with the result although would have liked a few more votes, I believe the Labour leaflet that I have posted on previously certainly cut my vote in Junction where they seemed to have concentrated on delivery.

Thanks to all that voted for me and also my team and especially my Agent Christine Humphries. Last but certainly not least thanks to my lovely wife Lorraine and my two girls for all their support, I am a very lucky man to have the three of you!!

Labour Leaflet

A very sad side to the Election was seen this week with a leaflet being distributed by Labour supporters with a section regarding myself which is totally untrue.

I have sought legal advice and believe that they have committed an offence under Section 106 of the representation of the people act 1983. A letter stating this was handed to the Labour Candidate today at 11:50am stating that the article was untrue and asked that they immediately cease their distribution of this leaflet. They were still delivering this leaflet today at 3pm.

I have great difficulty with this Labour candidate now and how he will work as an Assembly Member for the people of Aberconwy when he distributes such misleading information. I have also been advised to report this to the police.
