Mark Thompson who stood for the Liberal Democrats in Owlsmoor has blogged on this experiences of standing as a candidate, Please do have a read My experiences as a first time council election candidate.
I would like to thank Mark for doing so much work trying to win this seat and running the join blogs. I would also like to give my best wishes to all the activists and candidates I meet at the count from all the parties and wish everyone luck in whatever election they are standing in next.
People from all the parties may not all agree on how we can improve the local area or our national problems. However I do feel that at a local level all the activists I meet are passionate and all well meaning. This is just politics. After all there would be no democracy if we all agreed all the time on everything.
