Following the county council elections yesterday, I’m happy to say I’ve been re-elected to serve you for another term as County Councillor for Woodbridge. I’m also happy to say that the Woodbridge turnout of voters – at 42% – was highest in the entire Suffolk Coastal region, and the second highest in the whole of Suffolk.
Thank you! I’ll do my best to represent all of you, whether you voted for me or not.
The Woodbridge County Council election results in full were as follows:
MULCAHY – Patti (Conservative) – 870 votes (32% of vote)
PAGE – Caroline Anne (Liberal Democrats) – 1,127 votes (Elected) (42% of vote)
SMITH-LYTE – Rachel Ann (Green) – 122 votes (4.5% of vote)
STALEY – Pauline Isabella (UKIP) – 327 votes (12% of vote)
WHITE – John (Labour) – 255 votes – (9% of vote)
Total electors: 6,396

Hercule the 2cv may be a little elderly but he is much more useful than a bicycle for getting stakeboards around the town. Even though he has to be driven with the roof off.
Why is this? (I hear you ask)
Because the stakes are too high!
Er.. I’ll get me coat…
This is just to confirm that I will be standing for re-election as your Woodbridge County Councillor in the local government elections of 2 May.
I have just circulated this leaflet throughout Woodbridge (click on the pictures for a fullsize version).
However, when you are making the important decision about who to vote for, it’s not just a question of listening to what people say – you also need to look at what they have actually done.
You can find much more information as to what I have been doing – in and for Woodbridge, and for Suffolk as a whole – if you search, or follow the links on this blog.

The county council elections are in 5 weeks time, on Thursday May 2.
If you like all the things I have done for Woodbridge I hope you’ll vote me in.
If you don’t, this is your chance to vote me out.
Either way you need to be registered to vote – without a vote you have no voice!
In many ways local elections are far more important to your day-to-day life than national ones. Local elections give you a chance to have a say in the things that are literally closest to you: your roads, your schools, your transport, your care, your libraries, your environment. You’d be mad not to have your say.
Yet, hundreds of people in Suffolk could miss their chance to vote in local elections this May if they don’t take action now. The deadline to register and to apply for a postal vote is Wednesday 17 April and for a proxy vote, Wednesday 24 April.
Remember, its not just a case of being a newcomer to the area. Anyone who has moved house in the past few months needs to register with their new address. I’d also like to remind anyone turning 18 on or before 2 May to make sure they are registered, so that they can vote for the first time.
