I am writing to thank the residents of Monkseaton North ward for once again electing me as their councillor in the recent local elections.
It has been a privilege to represent the ward for the last four years and I am very much looking forward to another term working alongside my fantastic colleagues, Coun Les Miller and Coun Paul Mason.
Thanks also to the Monkseaton Action Team which supports us in our work all year round – Lewis, Frank, Liam, Stephen, Pam, Judith, Michael, and many more. Your support was very much appreciated.
Some strong friendships have been created this year and I am sure that the Monkseaton Action Team will go from strength to strength as a result.
Thanks also to the UKIP and Liberal candidates in the election for fighting dignified, decent and clean campaigns.
I can promise the residents of Monkseaton North that alongside Paul and Les, I will continue to work hard on their behalf, deal with their concerns and represent their views in council.
Councillor Alison Austin
