Election result 2010

May 7, 2010

After a very full campaign, the moment of decision came and I was delighted to be elected to continue to work hard for all residents of North East Hertfordshire. It remains to be seen what the vote will mean nationally, but I hope that we can have decisive Government to tackle our country’s difficult position. The result was as below:

Name Party Votes % +/-
Oliver Heald Conservative 26,995 53.5 5.5
Hugh Annand Liberal Democrat 11,801 23.4 3.1
David Kirkman Labour 8,291 16.4 -11.9
Majority 15,194 30.1  
Turnout 50,425 69.8 3.2

 

I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, my campaign team including agent Andrew Young, my family and my wife Christine. Here is a photograph of all the candidates and one of my team:

Taking the campaign to Buntingford, Barkway, Barley and Reed

April 27, 2010

Yesterday we were meeting voters in Buntingford, Barkway, Barley and Reed and the main subject raised was immigration and the need for a more efficient and effective system. Our Conservative policy of having a limit each year for non-EU immigration and a Border Police Force to enforce the rules is popular.

In Reed, a voter’s dog so liked us that he jumped in our campaign vehicle and refused to leave. Here is a photo:
