    Sam Crooks 1971 (51%) Dev Ahuja 1269 (33%) Monica Dowling 615 (16%) Thank you to everyone who took the trouble to vote yesterday, for whatever party. Particular thanks to those who supported me and the Focus team. My thanks also to Dev and Monica for a very spirited campaign, completely free from the hostility and rancour that happened in other areas. And just to emphasise, I represent EVERY resident. How people vote has no bearing on the help that I will try to give if asked.
