Thank you from Adrian

After a rollercoaster ride over the past five weeks, I must first thank each and everyone of the 2,439 Ipswich constituents who voted for me in the 2019 General Election.

Irrespective of the disappointing overall national election result, the Ipswich Liberal Democrats can be proud that in a leave voting constituency which was a top labour /Tory marginal seat I managed to more than double our vote from the 2017 election from 2.3% to 4.9% , return our party to be on the podium positions in 3rd, beating the Brexit Party, after having been 5th and then 4th in 2015 and 2017 General Elections and leaving a legacy of some new supporters and activists to take things forward into 2020.

One of my objectives, was to leave the local party in Ipswich in a better position to which I found it (though not expecting to have two General Elections in such a short space of time) to do this.

My thanks go to my agent Trevor Powell, to County & Borough Councillors Tim & Inga Lockington and Oliver Holmes (along with all of his family) for their incredible support, generosity and hospitality to enable me to be your candidate for Ipswich in this General Election.

Finally, I must thank those members of the local party who stood by me and welcomed having a Liberal Democrat candidate flying the Liberal flag in Ipswich - and as promised I will be back in the new year for a debrief and to help set your objectives for the year ahead.

With thanks to everyone for their support & wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.
Best wishes
