Quote of the week

Life isn't about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself'

If you cannot mould yourself entirely as you would wish, how can you expect other people to be entirely to your liking?

First Blog

The purpose this blog is to have a space where I can post my thoughts in the period ahead of the forthcoming election for Babergh District Council on May 3rd 2007. I am standing as one of the two Conservative candidates for the attractive and characterful Waldingfield Ward just north of Sudbury. Over the next three months I hope, among other things, to be able to post my thoughts when meeting people in and around the area, and also convey what I hope to be able to do for the Ward if I am elected.

The Ward elects two councillors to Babergh District Council. At present one of these is fellow Conservative Colin Spence, who in addition to being a county councillor, has been a district councillor for Waldingfield for many years. I feel very lucky to be able to benefit from Colin's long experience in the job. The other Councillor at present is a Liberal Democrat; the aim is to have two Conservative councillors for Waldingfield after May 3rd.

If I do become a councillor I hope to maintain this blog as one means of communicating with people in Waldingfield.
